Registration starts on friday 18th december at 8 PM
Registration in couple will not be mandatory but we will keep the balance between leaders and followers.
This marathon will not be “first registered – first served”.
Be careful: sending the form does not mean that you are IN. You will have to wait for the positive answer with the payment references. Your registration will be definitive only once we have received your payment.
GIRLS : If you registered in couple, you will be definitly IN only once both of you have paid. If the partner you registered with cannot participate to the marathon, you will have to find another one.
No refund. If you have to cancel after having paid, you cannot transfer your pass to a friend but we can try to put you in contact with someone on the waiting list.
The marathon is fully booked.
Sorry, no more registration is possible.
