Do you have health insurance? If you do, you can get an appointment with your general doctor and ask him for the certificate. some health insurance companies have Sports specialists ( Medicina deportiva, Medicina del deporte ) as well. I guess if you do not have any insurance you can get an appointment with a GP at a public hospital and ask him for the certificate and checkup.Liam3494 said:Same thing can apply for entry into certain running races in some countries. To enter the Paris Marathon (or any marathon in France) you need a medical certificate from a doctor to say you are fit to run. I believe the same applies in Uruguay, which will affect me as I plan to run a Marathon there later this year, so I would be interested as to where a "tourist" can acquire such a cert, or do I have to get it from my doctor back home in Ireland?
