- Participation Requirements
Palmanova Half Marathon is open to all athletes being at least 18 years old.
If you want to take part in the competitive race, Palmanova Half Marathon, and have the chance to compete for the prizes and be included in the FIDAL ranking list, you will need to follow precisely either of these possibilities:
– hold a valid membership of a foreign Sports Federation affiliated with IAAF; in this case you’ll have to provide to Eventi Sportivi Palmanova a copy of the association license or a self declaration in which you declare that you are affiliated to a IAAF sport club;
– register to the FIDAL – Runcard Website and provide to Runcard and Eventi Sportivi Palmanova a copy of the medical certification which allows you to take part in competitive races, according to the Italian law.
On the 21st of September, 2019, we received news from FIDAL (Italian Athletics Federation) that every foreign athlete living outside Italy is allowed to participate and enroll to our Half Marathon by simply signing a waiver form.
Foreign Athletes running without a Runcard/Medical Certificate or a IAAF licence may not win any prize and will not be included in the official rankings. There will be however another unofficial ranking where you can check your finish time. Please refer to the official rulebook for more information (available only in Italian). Once more please remind that participation regulations for foreign athletes registered with sports clubs affiliated to foreign federations remain unchanged.
