[ PRESS RELEASE of 05/02/21 ]

Cancellation of the 2021 International Gulf of Saint-Tropez Marathon

We had already sadly delayed the 2020 edition in 2021 but unfortunately the very uncertain health context of the coming months - with the announcement of the report of the state of health emergency extended until June 1, 2021 - forced the Community of municipalities of Gulf of Saint-Tropez and Azur Sport Organization (ASO), organizers of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez Marathon, to the cancellation of the 3rd edition which was to be held on March 28.

The Gulf of Saint-Tropez Marathon wants to offer the best guarantees for the holding of the event for its participants, its public, its volunteers and its partners, as well as for the organizing team and not to derogate in its image associated with the opening of the summer season. This great event requires significant preparatory work and the setting in motion of substantial material and human resources. The particularly uncertain health context in the coming months does not allow them to be implemented calmly, with the risk of a last minute cancellation.

That is why, 7 weeks before the scheduled date of this event, we are launching this cancellation procedure in order to address the concerns of all participants and not to further penalize runners who have to organize their travel and accommodation in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez.

Therefore, several options are available to registered runners:
1. Postponement of registration to the 2022 edition.
2. The exchange of the registration for a bibnumber for the 2021 edition of the French Riviera Marathon Nice-Cannes (November 28, 2021).
3. The donation of part or all of the registration to the International Gulf of St Tropez Marathon association.
4. Full reimbursement of registration fees, without penalties.

With the community of municipalities, ASO will however prepare you for an Gulf of Saint Tropez Marathon in connected mode with lots of new features and surprises and make you discover the tourist heritage of the towns of the community of municipality crossed by the marathon. Full details will soon be announced on the facebook page and on the official event website.

Sport, a social and health vector, must not stop living and must not stop making us vibrate. For this we thank you in advance for your kindness and your understanding, in particular in respect for our teams and the hundreds of hours of work tirelessly carried out until these last days.

In the coming days, a form will be sent by email to all registered runners to begin the procedure to choose from the available options available to them.

Take care of you.
