Insurances

What is the Personal Accident Insurance ?

This Personal Accident Insurance is offered by the organiser's insurer so that you are correctly covered during your participation in the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris 2021. It is optional but is strongly recommended.

As you may know, the vast majority of your usual insurance policies (particularly your car insurance, insurance provided automatically through your bank cards, household insurance, bank loan insurance, etc.) totally exclude any participation in sports events either on an amateur or professional basis, and therefore exclude the risks involved in your taking part in the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris.

It is therefore important that you check the extent of the cover provided by your normal insurance policies (and the exclusions) and, if you are not sufficiently covered or not covered at all, you should consider taking out the proposed insurance policies by clicking on the link below.

This insurance will cover you if you have an accident whilst taking part in the event, whether or not you were responsible and whether or not there is an identified responsible third party. You are only covered during the event from the time you cross the starting line until the time you cross the finishing line or you abandon the event.

In the event of an accident during your participation in the event, it covers:

  • Medical costs (within the limits that you have chosen),
  • in the event of death or total or partial permanent disability (due to this accident): the payment of compensation (within the limits that you have chosen)

This cover Individual Accident is optional but highly recommended. It can be taken out in addition to any existing insurance you may already have or if you are not already covered. You may purchase the cover from the insurer of your choice, from your federation or from Aon, organizer’s broker, whose proposal (detailed notice and application form) can be consulted and downloaded by clicking on the link below. You can subscribe to the option providing the minimum cover for this offer during your registration for the event and other options by downloading the relevant form here and sending it directly to Aon (aso@aon.com).

Can I cancel my registration?

If you signed up for the Pass Event J’aime courir when you registered

Name changes are not allowed.

However, if you subscribed the J’aime courir PASS EVENT, you’ll benefit from cancellation insurance which will ensure that the registration fees of the holder of PASS EVENT will be refunded if they are obliged to cancel their participation in the race before it begins, for one of the reasons indicated below:

  • Death, accident or illness of the insured participant,
  • Death, accident or serious illness (requiring hospitalisation) of a partner, child or parent, of the insured party, which takes place up to thirty days before the event,
  • Refusal of the insured party’s visa by the French authorities,
  • Theft of the insured party’s identity papers 48 hours before the start of the race,
  • Court summons.

The price of the race number alone (the amount of the registration fees solely) will be covered, excluding any other purchases or costs. The PASS EVENT, the options and the contents of the packs purchased during the registration process will never be refunded by the insurer.

Medical Certificate / Rules

Do I need a medical certificate?

Oh yes! Without a valid medical certificate mentioning “no counter indication to taking part in athletics competitions” or “no counter indication to taking part in running competitions”, you won't be able to run! Check out our medical certificate page on the website to be sure that yours has been provided correctly. Even better, to avoid errors, we recommend that you use our model certificate which is available here.

A copy of the medical certificate will be accepted. Your medical certificate should be made by your doctor. After examining you, he should sign a letter carrying the mention "no contra-indication to athletics in competition" or “no contra-indication to running in competition.”

Those registered in 2020 must also provide a new medical certificate, dated less than one year before the day of the event (no later than 18/10/2021).

How can I upload my medical form on my time to account?

To do so, simply log in on your time to account and click on "My Account" - "My Events" then "Upload a document". Your document must be less than 1MB and in JPEG, PNG or PDF format. If your document exceeds 1MB, you will need to compress it before uploading it. Once your medical certificate has been successfully uploaded, it will appear as being "pending" for validation by our teams.

If your medical certificate has been refused or if you didn’t upload it, you will have to print and bring it at the bib collection (it must be dated less than a year prior the date of the race and have the wording «running in competition », « athletism in competition » or « sport in competition »).

When will my medical certificate be validated on my time to account?

The validation of medical certificates by the organization will start two months before the race. You will received an automatic email informing you of its validation or refusal.

Where can the regulations of the event be consulted?

You will find the regulations of the 2021 Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris by  clicking here.

When will I know my bib number?

COVID-19

Will the sanitary pass be mandatory?

Following government announcements, the use of the "sanitary pass" has been extended as of July 21 to events with more than 50 people.

Therefore, given the elements communicated to date, as part of your participation in the Semi, you will have to present us with a valid sanitary pass to participate in the event. Please note that these elements may change, depending on government regulations. We will keep you informed.

While waiting for the Harmonie Mutuelle Semi de Paris, we commit ourselves to do everything possible to ensure that our races take place in complete safety and in strict compliance with current health regulations.

What are the sanitary measures during the event ?

We will apply the health protocol in force at the time of the event. We will come back to all the runners once it is validated.
A guide of good conduct will be communicated to you to respect the instructions of the competent authorities.

If my country closes its borders with France, am I entitled to a refund?

Unfortunately, no. As stated in the rules of the event, all entries are personal, firm and final, and cannot be reimbursed for any reason whatsoever.

If I test positive for COVID-19 on the day of the Harmonie Mutuelle Semi de Paris, am I entitled to a refund?

Unfortunately, no. As stated in the rules of the event, all entries are personal, firm and final, and cannot be reimbursed for any reason whatsoever.

Does the cancellation insurance cover a positive test for COVID-19?

The J'aime Courir Event Pass, which includes cancellation insurance, does not cover a possible positive test that would prevent you from running the Harmonie Mutuelle Semi de Paris.

Start / Finish Area

What time does the race start?

At the top of the Champs Elysées.
Precise starting times will be given later.

Where is the finish line?

At the bottom of Avenue Foch.

How can I change my starting area ?

If you want to be part of the elite, preferential starting area, register in the red one and then send us your performance certificate of less than 2 years by email to parismarathon@aso.fr. We will then change your assignment.

If you want to change for the red to pink starting areas, you can modify your bib range directly from your time to account, in "my events" section. Once in your event, click on "Modify registration". You will then find all the information related to your registration and can thus modify your starting area.

D Day

Are there luggage lockers?

You will have the possibility of depositing your bag free of charge in the lockers located on Avenue Foch (finish area) to run with a clear mind and pockets. You will be able to get it back after the race by presenting your number.

Are there changing rooms?

No, you will not find a changing room. You will probably have to cross the streets of Paris in fluorescent clothing but, for once, it will be "classy". However, we have a locker room at your disposal on the Avenue Foch (finish area). You can leave your bag there (closed) and get it back after the race when you show your number.

Are there any toilets?

You will find toilets along the starting locks on the avenue des Champs Elysées and at the finish on the avenue Foch.

If you feel like it on the course, you will find toilets every 2.5km from km 5! Don't panic!

Is there a possibility to eat on the course?

We want to make sure you have the strength to make it to the finish line, so of course! Refreshment stations will be set up every 5 km. You will find water, bananas, sugar...

What is the timing system?

All registrants will be given, along with their race number, an electronic chip (in the form of strips stuck behind each number) which will be automatically initialized at the starting line and will serve as a race regularity control at various points along the course (every 5km and at the 21st km). A competitor who does not use the roadway will not be classified at the finish.

Are there pacemakers to help me achieve my goals?

Of course there are! In each starting locker, pacemakers will be present to help you achieve your goals. They will be easily identifiable, just like the leaders in a cabaret: they will be wearing large feathers in the colors of your airlock!

After the Race

Where and when can I find my results?

Your results will be available on time to the day of the event in the afternoon. A diploma will be available for download on the same website, where you will also find photos and videos of the race. All you have to do is share them on social networks to show what you were doing while the others were sleeping in!

Are there rankings?

Of course! We don't want to put you under any pressure (promise!), but it has to be said that we want you to run a good time (a little bit of pressure never did any harm)!

INDIVIDUAL:

  • There will be an individual ranking that all runners will be included in.

Where can I get my medal?

The finisher's medal will be given to you at the finish line. Almost as soon as you arrive, you will be able to show everyone your valour!

Where can I see my photos?

Individual photos will be available on the website www.marathon-photos.coma few days after the event. You can then order them and keep a personal souvenir of your achievement.
