1. REGISTRATIONS

Everyone! All you need is to be born in 2002 or before ... well, it all depends on the race you’ve chosen:

  • Access to the village and activities
  • Training
  • Race participation
  • Electronic chip timing
  • A t-shirt
  • Finishers’ medal
  • the status of finisher

2. RUN WITH YOUR COMPANY

The Challenge Alptis des Entreprises is where employees in the same company get together to represent their company at Run In Reims. Challenge Alptis des Entreprises is also the opportunity for the intern to tell the Human Resources Director that they really want a permanent contract, for Fred (the accountant) to explain to Jean (his team member) that he is doing a great job, and for Alexandra to run alongside Tom, for whom she has a bit of a soft spot. In short, it is an excellent team-building tool!

Do you think your company could be interested? Click here to download the presentation leaflet and find out all the information you need. You can also get hold of the order form which you will need to register. You can also contact:

  • Anaïs Leloup, by email to aleloup@aso.fr or + 33 (0)1.41.33.15.18

Nothing could be easier: go and see your team leader and ask nicely for your code. Then, all you need to do is register on the time to website. Then start training to make sure you clock up a good time for your company!

4. MEDICAL CERTIFICATE/ RULES

A medical certificate stating no contra-indication to athletics, running, or triathlon in competition is mandatory. It must be dated less than a year before the race.

Oh yes! Without a valid medical certificate mentioning “no counter indication to taking part in athletics competitions” or “no counter indication to taking part in running competitions”, you won't be able to run! Check out our medical certificate page to be sure that yours has been provided correctly. Even better, to avoid errors, we recommend that you use our model certificate which is available here.

6. PRACTICAL INFORMATION FOR THE D DAY

When you pick up your race bib, we will also give you a timing chip which takes the form of a strip stuck behind each bib. Long live technology! This chip will be automatically started when you cross the start line and will check your regularity throughout the course at various points (every 5km in fact). For example, a participant who doesn't take the right route can't be ranked at the end.

For your chip to be detected by the timing mats throughout the route, make sure that you:

  • Don't fold your bib
  • Don't crease your bib
  • Don't unstick the strips
  • Don't let children draw on them either.
  • And if you are wearing a top over your bib, remember to unzip it when you run over the mats.

We will make sure that you get all the sustenance you need to get across the finish line! Refreshments will be organised for all three races, every 5 km. You can grab some water, dried fruit, fresh fruit and sugar.

No, there are no changing rooms. You might need to walk across Reims in your fluorescent outfit, but for once, this is acceptable. But there will be left luggage facilities at the finish line. You can leave your (closed) bag there and pick it up after the race upon presentation of your bib.

You can leave your bags at the left luggage facilities next to the finish line so your can run with a clear head and empty pockets. You pick it up after the race upon presentation of your bib.

At the request of the authorities, all kinds of back packs (including Camelbaks) will be forbidden in the starting areas for security purposes.

You will find toilets at the start alongside the starting area and at the finish line.

Of course! In each starting area, pacemakers will be there to help you meet your goals. Just like cabaret dancers, they are easy to spot: they will be wearing feathers in the colours of your starting area!
