On Friday 25 October, FIDAL has made official that non-Italian citizens have now the option to participate in marathons as competitive runners or as non-competitive runners. In this second scenario, there is no need for the athletes for a medical certificate and registration with Runcard. Instead, the athlete will be required to sign an ad hoc waiver form at the pick-up of the race packet.
However, please note that 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.
