Ripley

24th Firenze Marathon 07

Recommended Posts

have signed up for this event (bib no. 955F) as my health certification by dr ben tan is still valid... and since all italian running events need doctor's certification, i will make use of it fully... :P plus those who register before

Firenze Marathon 2007

all athletes enrolled before 30th september will get the start number printed with name and surname... :smilie_daumen1: so cool hor...

and the registration cost for non european residents are euro$55 (by 30 jun), euro$65 (by 15 oct), euro$85 (by 15 nov)... fee includes euro$5 for chip which will be refunded after event... cost of registration includes official race bag with ASICS material, finisher medal, & participant certificate by mail... think its value for money... :tongue_smilie:

:( yeah...

i went to both "company" doc and GP... bot say can't... so i went to the professional... need to do ECG... that's the downside... the upside is that we know we are okie to do the event... although that's too simple to say we are 100% okie... <_<

So just ECG and doctor's certification will do?

bingo... :) then you have to fax the doctor's certification to event organiser... and they allocate you the bib... you will not be given a bib even you have registered and paid... :)

for me, i took a pic of my certification (cos i have no scanner) and email over to them... :smilie_daumen1:

moin leggie,

i don't think it will be very cold cos it's near the mediterrenean sea. most probably it will be only between 17° - 22° or slightly lower or higher. if it is cooler than 18° celsius, that will be perfect weather for marathon (13° - 16° celsius).

ripley, how much do you pay for the health cert? been thinking about running in italy & france (i guess) but the cert just scares me away!

OP - planning to run the 30th stockholm marathon 2008 (31. may 2008)

halo OP... where have you been hiding!!!!!!!!!

health cert from singapore is $90 for doc consultation... plus $50 for ECG... :) but the ECG is the normal 4-lead ECG... :smilie_daumen1:

you wanna come? come join me too... :)

I recall that we needed to provide medical cert for Mt. Kinabalu Climbathon too... went to a GP, and paid $20. I guess a Singapore certification can be applied in Europe as well?

$20 only??? GP? my GP refused to answer the question... cos the health cert needs to doc to take responsibility that i am fit to take part in the marathon... even my office doctor also won't do that... :(

can share which GP you go too?

should not be a big deal leh... so many of us participate in marathons and endurance runs without even a medical check; not even a declaration like those we do before taking an official IPPT...

the doc asked me what it was for; I said just to certify that I was able to climb mountains; He said u sure u r fit? I told him I have done a few marathons and ultra-marathon liao...so what is a mountain yah? He just took my blood pressure, said good, and sign off lor... good $ what? hehe

well, that said about the standard in singapore as compare to italy... i think i mentioned this before... in italy, children age 12 must go through a mandatory health check / screening to determine if he/she can do sports (i think something like that)...

in italy, all their events require a doctor's assurance that the participants is in good condition to do the event... otherwise, the doctor's is liable... <_<

i think it is time that singapore look into how useful if this is implemented... judging from the series of sports-related death in recent weeks / months...

wah... so excited after reading the event website...

A WONDERFUL ASICS TECHNICAL LEOTARD PERSONALIZED BY THE FLORENCE MARATHON IS GIVEN AS PRESENT TO ALL REGISTERED RUNNERS.

The run package includes long sleeve t-shirt by RadioDeeJay-Firenze

Marathon, the water-flask by Enervit, with energetic products and educational leaflet, Nature Valley’s snacks and other products offered by the marathon’s sponsors.

It is a richer and richer run package the one waiting for the athletes registered to the Florence Marathon. Indeed, the organizing staff has decided to propose a wonderful Asics technical sky-blue leotard personalized by the Florence Marathon for the 2007 edition of this big international event. An ideal garment for those who love running, perfectly matching with the technical t-shirt offered on the occasion of last year run, always within the by now historical cooperation between the Florentine marathon and the prestigious Asics brand, technical sponsor and event supporter ever since. This year the novelty consists in the long sleeve t-shirt offered by Radio DeeJay, new national media partner of the marathon, and personalized with the event logo in its turn, as well as the Enervit water-flask. Those are products created for those who love running and living sport in the open air and which thanks to their personalization become pleasant memories of the participation into the XXIV edition of the Florence Marathon. The run parcel will also include the energetic products by Enervit, together with the educational leaflet featuring use suggestions, some delicious snacks by Nature Valley as well as further products offered by the event’s sponsors.

Finally, all the athletes who will break the tape will receive the prestigious commemorative medal of the XXIV edition of the Florence Marathon, portraying one of the art treasures of the city: the ‘Perseus’ by Benvenuto Cellini.
