Paris Marathon 2015

Hi all


I have a place to run in the Paris marathon 2015.

just checking the website it says 'convocation must be printed in order to get bibs.'

Can some one tell me what this is.Says its unavailable on website.

also when should I get my medical certificate?seems too early at the moment.

trying not to panic already!!

Hi Fido and Dan

thanks for your feedback.great that the slower runners were allowed to finish.Think most would accept that some of the signs/Marshall's etc would have gone but still good to get an official time.what I would hate to happen is if someone got to 24 miles but were told to stop running as had already taken 4.5 hours.

Im hoping to get my time down to 4.40 ish and don't mind a quiet second half of the race.Do a lot of my training running through Milton,Sutton Courtney so makes sense to do my local race

I also note the disqualification of six runners for wearing headphones,good on the organisers as so often that rule isn't brought to bear.

Any idea when entry for next years race will open?

Was supporting at Milton yesterday and nice to beable to applaude the runners twice.

One thing I did wonder is the race stated a 5 hr cut off time though looking at the results the slower runners 5 hrs+ still got their chip times recorded.i wasn't at Tilsley Park to see the finish but assume the slower runners still got to run over finish line and get a medal ie organisers hadn't packed up etc!!

this is important to me if I enter as I am one of the slower runners (ran 4 hrs 57 mins at Chester marathon 2 weeks ago though hope to get faster before Oct 15)

any feedback appreciated.


Well done to all yesterday,looked a great race

finished in 4:57:03

Target sub 5 hrs so delighted

Stayed with 4.45 pacer til around 16 miles then got some tightness in calf.Had to stop and stretch a few times which helped but lost  the group.Felt quite good though and got to 20 miles in 3:45 so knew sub 5 hrs was on.ran the last mile in 10.2 which I'm really chuffed with.Great to shake hands with Chris Hulse at the finish.

Great organisation,some challenging hills,great pacers,great wonder Chester gets some great reviews

many thanks for the great advice.

Will stay with 5 hour pacer get that sub 5 hr Any time less than that would just be a bonus for me.Slow and steady,just like my training runs.however they finished at 20 miles so just need to have something left for the last 6!

Im aiming to get sub 5 hrs but don't know whether I should start with 4.45 pacer with the option of running with the 5 hr pacer in the later stages should it get too tough for me,or whether I stuck with the 5 hr pacer all the way

my previous best is 5 hrs 10 has gone well but for me always depends on how I feel on the day etc

any advice would be much appreciated
