Marathon Du Medoc Medical

Marathon du Medoc Medical Certificate

Applied to run the Marathon du Medoc? Don’t get stuck at the start line for forgetting that medical certificate.

All Marathon du Medoc competitors should submit their medical certificate to race authorities before the end of May, before taking part in what’s known as “the world’s longest, booziest race”. Not only must you be fit enough for the full 26.2 mile trek, but also to do so in compulsory “tales & legends” fancy-dress attire, while indulging in a considerable amount of wine, cheese, oysters and other local specialities.

If you haven’t already got this Certificate, our doctors at LDC would be more than happy to assist you with this at any of our 18 London clinics – for the lowest price in London!

Whilst the certificates may look very simple, they require a thorough medical assessment. You must complete your medical assessment well before your event, so you have adequate time to complete the mandated tests and/or any additional tests which may be required if abnormalities are discovered during the assessment.

Will you definitely be able to sign me off as fit to participate?

Whilst we are able to sign most participants as fit to compete, if abnormalities are discovered, we may not be able to do so until additional tests are completed. This may include but is not exclusive to and echocardiogram or further cardiac tests.

You will still be liable for the full costs of the medical assessment, please note, you will be liable for the full cost of the medical even if you are not deemed fit to compete.
