Rome Marathon Medical Certificate

Planning on running the Rome Marathon? Don’t get stuck at the start line, for forgetting that medical certificate.

Maratona di Roma competitors must obtain an official ‘runcard’ prior to the race if they plan to run competitively. This runcard should be presented to officials on race day, prior to commencing the 26.2 mile trek. To apply for this runcard, competitors must have completed a thorough medical examination to obtain a certificate stating that the competitor is healthy and fit for competitive athletics. This must be dated, stamped and signed by the examining doctor.

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.

One less excuse not to pass that finish line – buona fortuna!

FIDAL has recently made it official that non-Italian citizens have now the option to participate in marathons as non-competitive runners.  In this scenario, a medical certificate is NOT  required. By choosing this option, the athlete will be starting in a separate grid at the end of the competitive event, independently of the relevant “Best Time”. The race time will not be displayed in the general leader board but will rather only be available next to the Athlete’s name, in alphabetical order, in a separate result table and the Athlete will not be able to receive any prizes.
