    I hope you have second thoughts and don't put your GP in this position!

    I would have though her GP is the one person who knows she does not have any fitness issues that would be relevant.

    Her GP may know her current health and fitness status well, in which case my statement is partly irrelevant, but to have a form thrust upon you in a non professional setting does not strike me as ideal. Is seeing somebody in the park examining them? Is reviewing them in a different context on a previous occasion good enough?

    Or perhaps a bike shop? The one near Lefty must be rolling in money.

    No, I didn't mean I'd ask my GP to sign a form at a parkrun. IMO that would be seriously bad behaviour on my part. I meant that the fact that she runs parkruns and that we sometimes run the same one suggests that she would look sympathetically on my ambition to run a French race. Since at 74 I have LOTS of things wrong with me, my GP sees me frequently, and I was imagining taking advantage of one of these sessions to produce my form.
    Begin afresh, afresh, afresh.

    Sorry for misunderstanding your post! All the best with the race - and a Happy Xmas!

    Does the second paragraph in this link help?

    England Athletics may believe that to be the case but in my experience producing an EA Licence is likely to meet with a Gallic shrug and a flat "Non".
