"Squadron" Team Marathon

Sunday 16 September 2018

Start at 9:30 a.m

First marathon in France, and perhaps even worldwide, the Colmar Marathon "squadron" team allows you to share your challenge with 2 fellow runners.

The first runner will depart from km 0 and run the entire race, runner #2 will join him at km19 and runner #3 will meet them both at km 32, the goal being to pass the finish line together!

Families, friends and shorter-distance runners can therefore accompany a marathon runner for a while on the race and support him/her until the finish line.

The route is the same as the standard marathon: the 42,195 km race will be 8-shaped (or pretzel- shaped, for the most imaginative!) : departing from Colmar city centre, the runners will head south towards Wettolsheim and Eguisheim (rated France's favorite village in 2013); and will then come back to Colmar for the north loop on the wine road - Wintzenheim, Ingersheim, Katzenthal, Ammerschwihr, Kientzheim and Sigolsheim- before a finish in Colmar historical centre.

The time requirement is 6h for the marathon and 2h30 for the half-marathon. Timing will be controlled via electronic chips.

Athletes having a FFA- , FF Tri-, FSCF-, FSGT-, UFOLEP Athlétisme- sports license, but also runners without sports license, can participate to the race.

Each participant must present a valid medical certificate, issued less than 1 year prior to the race date, stipulating "the absence of contraindications for running or participation in running competition".
