TYPES OF MEDICAL CERTIFICATES
- Standard Medical Certificate for athletes: Issued by an authorized doctor to confirm that the racer is fit to participate in competitive sports.
- Medical Diagnostic Form for Athletes with Physical Impairment: Eligibility for the 2023 OCR European Championships Para competition requires an athlete to have an underlying medical diagnosis (Health Condition) that results in a permanent and eligible impairment.
We are very pleased that you are considering to participate in the 2023 edition of the OCR European Championships. In order to make the event safer for the participants – and prevent problems with any pre-existing medical conditions – situations during the event, all the racers (except for kids) must provide a medical certificate that confirms that you are fit to participate in competitive sporting events. To be considered valid on race day, the document certificate must have been obtained within the preceding 12 months.
Once you have completed the registration process, you will receive an email that confirms that your registration request is received and pending for approval. Your medical document will be reviewed by the Registrations Team. Please keep in mind that the Medical Certificate is also necessary for the Open category. After validation, you will receive another email that will confirm that your registration was validated. Please be aware that if you fail to provide a valid certificate, no refund will be provided.
Para Athletes will have to upload both documents (the Medical Certificate and the Medical Diagnostic Form for Athletes with Physical Impairment).
NO MEDICAL CERTIFICATION MEANS NO RACE, NO EXCEPTIONS
