Since the beginning of the pandemic, the world has changed and with it, our way of interacting with people. Sport has not been oblivious to these changes and adapting to the new situation is difficult, but it is possible. Maspalomas Marathon is a safe event for everyone, where in order to strictly comply with health regulations, we will adapt all the protocols of the event so that you only have to worry about your performance during the 42,195 meters.
THE ISLAND WITH AN EXHAUSTIVE CONTROL AT THE AIRPORT
The Public Authorities of the Canary Islands have established a series of measures for visitors to the islands, including:
Negative PCR, TMA or RT-LAMP test performed within 72 hours prior to arrival in the Canary Islands.
Declaration on health control forms (FCS).
Health check consisting of taking temperature and visual check for absence of symptoms.
NEGATIVE TEST REQUIRED
Depending on the visitor's place of origin, a certificate of a diagnostic test of COVID-19 with a negative result carried out within 72 hours prior to arrival in the Canary Islands is required to be presented at the chosen accommodation. The test must be approved by the health authorities of the country of origin or by the European Union.
Likewise, those registered for the race must present the documentation determined by the organisation, which will be updated in the race regulations.
INSURANCE IN CASE OF CANCELLATION OF THE EVENT DUE TO COVID-19
In case the event is cancelled due to the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, participants will be able to request a refund of their registration fee, as well as any extra items they may have purchased.
COVID-19 REFUND POLICY FOR INCIDENTALS
