Medical certificate & regulations

Is the medical certificate mandatory?

Oh yeah! Without a medical certificate stating “approved for the practice of running in competition / or the practice of athletics in competition / or the practice of sport in competition”, it will be impossible to participate! Consult our  medical certificate page to be sure that yours was done in due form. Better, to avoid mistakes, we suggest you use the template available here.

How to put my medical certificate online ?

You can directly upload your medical certificate into your time to account and ensure it's valid. Under your Run In Lyon registration, you will have the possibility to upload your medical certificate and make sure that your medical certificate has been validated. Once the "pending" status is displayed, the document will be pending for validation by the organization. You will receive an email once validated or refused. The file must be PDF, JPEG, or PNG and less than 1 MB in size.

What does "pending" mean after downloading my medical certificate?

Your medical certificate is "pending" verification by our teams. This process will take several weeks due to the large number of participants. You will receive an email informing you of the validation, or refusal, of your medical certificate by the organization.
