After this date, you will need to go to the Gymnase Fédération to provide your medical certificate and a proof of identity in order to retrieve your bib.

How does it work?

The medical certificate or license will no longer be required when you register online for the event;
- Once your registration for the race via the registration platform is complete, Dokeop will send you an email inviting you to upload your document on its application for verification.
- Dokeop then takes care of communicating to us the status of your supporting document (valid / refused / awaiting document / awaiting validation) so that we can finalize your registration.

Please note: The creation of a Dokeop member account is not mandatory to upload your document but we advise you to do so if you wish to benefit from their advantages (recognition of your document for your next registrations / secure storage / reminder before expiration / personalized dashboard).

For any claim related to the verification of your supporting document, we invite you to contact the Dokeop teams directly at the following address: support@dokeop.com
