PUMA 2023 anniversary shoe
This does not exist very often: a pair of shoes for a race! However, we offer it to you:
Order your exclusive and limited Puma Velocity NITRO 2 in the classy Generali Cologne Marathon look “white-for all time red” for the 25th anniversary.
The shoe is made of high quality raw materials infused with Nitrogen, becomes extremely lightweight and comfortable and provides superior responsiveness and cushing by the advanced NITRO foam technology, with PUMAGRIP.
The Velocity NITRO 2 will be available in the EU size 36 to 43 for women and 39 to 49 for men. The handout will follow at the Running.EXPO on September 29 and 30, 2023.
Just book it within the online registration process – or via the edit link in the email confirmation of registration – while stocks last!
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
- € 8.01 (1st contingency) or
- € 12.25 (2nd and 3rd contingency).
- € 6.16 (1st and 2nd contingency) or
- € 8.01 (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 booked this insurance and you cannot take part in the race please deregister via this form (see below) and send the following documents to the insurance at email@example.com:
- copy of your email confirmation of registration
- fully filled deregistration form
- copy of the insurance pass (“Versicherungsausweis”) – see your email confirmation of registration
- 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.
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 and will again introduce the student cup (‘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 German university you may register online prior to September 19, 2023 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 would-be graduates:
- #1: € 250.00 contribution to the semester fee, sponsored by Generali Cologne Marathon
- #2: € 150.00 for the canteen, sponsored by Kölner Studierendenwerk
- #3: € 70.00 voucher, e. g. for KölnShop, concert tickets etc.
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 student scoring. A reimbursement will however not be possible.
