Medical Certificate

As of the 2025 Paris Marathon, runners will no longer be required to fill out a medical certificate!

Cancellation Policy

As the Schneider Electric Paris Marathon does not permit refunds, cancellation or deferral unless they cancel the event, our packages are non-refundable without insurance and entries may not be deferred.  However, we do appreciate that things can happen and we will do the best to help you if you need to cancel.

If you need to cancel AND we are able to resell your entry package prior to the marathon’s registration deadline, the following fees will apply:

  • 15% of your payment amounts if cancelling 120 days or more prior to registration closing.
  • 25% of your payment amounts if cancelling between 7 and 119 days prior to registration closing.
  • 50% of your payment amounts if cancelling 6 days or less prior to registration closing.
  • 100% of your deposit and payment amounts if cancelling after registration closes or at any time if we’re unable to resell your package

The difference between what you paid, and the fee listed above will be held as a credit for you for 24 months from the time you made your last payment for this particular package. Credits may only be used for events listed on our website.


Note that these fees are refundable if you purchase insurance and cancel for an insurable reason.

Insurance

Each year we have many people cancel due to unforeseen circumstances who did not purchase our travel insurance meaning they end up losing their package amount.  Protect yourself and your money by purchasing our Group Insurance through ManuLife.

With our insurance you will be able to cancel for insurable reasons as well as running injuries while training and we also sell a Cancel For Any Reason policy!  We offer various other insurance packages including Cancellation, Interruption, Medical and Baggage. For full details on coverage, please click here: Manulife Financial.

In order to assist you with your insurance in case of problem or if you need to use your insurance, you need to quote the following when purchasing your insurance:
Agency ID: JTATVTE
Agent: Yumi


If you receive a message saying the site is down, please use a different web browser or platform.

Please note that the insurance coverage that you may have on your credit card will not cover you completely! We are unable to process insurance for those living in Quebec – please contact your local travel agency for coverage.
