The medical team consists of doctors, nurses and first aiders from the Red Cross. They will be available for your runners at the start and finish and will be posted at all hydration stations around the course.

Our marathon pacemakers help you keep the time and pace for your goal. Each pacemaker will have a flag that you can easily follow around the race. The flag is marked with the marathon finish time. Marking 4:00 means that the pacemaker will complete the full marathon in 4 hours. Even if you are a half marathon runner, you can follow this pacemaker on the section that is common to both distances (first 17 km) and you will be well helped to finish in 2 hours
