After a cancellation in 2020, there it is, finally, the 30th edition of La Rochelle Serge Vigot Marathon !!
After these months in brackets, we are pleased to get back with our races and the party which will come with it. The organization team never stopped work, in order not to damage the athletes and not to discourage the volunteers and partners. Our team can now serenely organize the 2021 edition, which make us very happy. So, we invite you to come back to party, to share emotions again during a sporty, popular, convivial and festive week-end !
Regarding the races, Duo comes back in 2021 and is opened to 700 teams. After a break in 2020 it has been improved to assure more security and fluidity in relays zone.
We celebrate this year the 30th edition of the Marathon, which will be able to welcome 8000 runners, the 10th edition of 10 km which is evolving : 3000 runners at the start (2200 in 2019) and the last kilometer on Marathon’s route. The Companies Challenge is also on the agenda, with 150 teams. This programme will not be complete without athletes with disabilities, the wheelchair half-marathon will be on the spotlights this year for its 20th edition.
Despite a delicate economic context, we have decided to maintain our pricing policy, so registration fees and options are the same as 2020.
Our life changed durably, and our behaviour altered. It is obvious our 30th edition will be « Covid compatible ». As we always did, we will take all necessary means in order to assure security, sanitary security in particular to all participants. Life starts again, so we invite you to celebrate with us this « back to normal » ans this 30th edition, which will be full of surprises for runners, volunteers and spectators.
And if, unfortunately, the 2021 races should be canceled because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we commit to offer to runners the possibility of having a full refund or a postponement of their registration, as we did for 2020 edition.
This year as the previous ones, organization team, association members, employees and volunteers join me to wish you a wonderful week-end of sport and friendship, and thank you for your trust and your presence since 30 years.
Have a good race,
For the association of La Rochelle Serge Vigot Marathon,
