The UEM Primary School race

There is no speed limit for this race. It is designed for children in primary schools. Each pupil will choose his time of race. 5 durations are scheduled : 10',15',20',25' or 30'. At the departure signal, all the children will run around a loop. A clock will indicate the time spent. The pupil will be able to stop whenever he wants, near a race official. The pupil who achieved his contract will receive a "long race" diploma. Timing and distance of the race will be noted.

The pupils who have an USEP licence do not need to show a medical certificate. However, the children who register on their own must present a medical certificate certifying their ability to run in competition.

For more information, the pupils can ask their teachers.​

The Secondary School UEM races 

Two races are proposed to the children of Secondary schools. A race of approximately 1,8 km for the students in year 7 (11-12) and in year 8 (12-13), and a longer race (approximately 2,7 km) for students in years 9 and 10 (between 13 and 15 years old).

The race will start at 10:30 am, on the esplanade of the Place of the Republic (schedule to be confirmed)

These classic races are the object of mixed rankings which will distinguish years 7/8 from years 9/10 (no chips).


The students holders of the UNSS or UGSEL license are exempted from the medical certificate. The children who register individually have to present a medical certificate certifying their ability to run in competition.
