What to do when you get ill prior to the race or you cannot come due to important reasons?
The Generali entry fee insurance (managed by Europ Assistance) will cover the costs of the entry fee e. g. in the case of illness, accident, unemployment, short-time work or extensive damage to your property (cf. insurance policy, in German 🇩🇪 only).
Book the entry fee insurance – depending on the entry fee contingency for
- € 20.35 (1st contingency)
- € 23.56 (2nd contingency)
- € 26.78 (3rd contingency)
– and you can start your training without any stress! :o)
Please find further information on the coverage of the policy here (in German 🇩🇪 only!).
What is to do in the case of an insured event?
As long as you have booked this insurance and you cannot take part in the race please submit your claim via the new online tool (in German 🇩🇪 only) when having an IBAN code:
- copy of your email confirmation of registration
- fully filled deregistration form
- proof of illness, damage etc. (e. g. medical certificate)
- your bank details (IBAN and BIC)
NOTE: A reimbursement is only possible with an IBAN account.
Cologne student cup
Those who learn a lot need to keep a level head! And to keep this, as is well-known, you have to do sports and go running. Therefore, we would like to award running students in Cologne and will again introduce the Cologne student cup (‘Kölner Studi-Werk Cup’ in German 🇩🇪) in cooperation with the Kölner Studierendenwerk for the marathon and half marathon like year before.
When you are currently matriculated at a Cologne-based university you may register online prior to September 15, 2024 for cheaper rates (after the first entry fee contingency 10% off the entry fee). Note: This scoring is not available for elite runners.
And we will have fancy prices for the fastest Cologne would-be graduates:
- #1: trip to Uni-Champ by E&P-Reisen
- #2: € 250.00 contribution to the semester fee, sponsored by Generali Cologne Marathon
- #3: € 150.00 contribution to canteen meals, sponsored by Kölner Studierendenwerk
NEW: The award ceremony will directly take place on stage in the finish after the race for the first time. Please bring your valid student ID to race. We will check it before the award ceremony.
Note: Should you already be registered for the race we still may enroll you for the special Cologne student scoring. A reimbursement will however not be possible.
