Bib number and starter package
From this year on, you have the possibility to pick up the documents for your start free of charge in Munich or to have the starter package sent to your home. You make your choice when you register for the GENERALI MUNICH MARATHON.
The location of the starting number distribution and the opening hours during the week of the event will be announced in time. The dispatch will take place 10 days before the GMM.
Included in the starter package:
- Your personal bib number with integrated transponder for timekeeping.
- Your GMM starter bag with giveaways from our sponsors and partners. For safety and capacity reasons we only ask you to use your GMM starterbag for storing your clothes on Sunday.
- Pre-ordered vouchers (e.g. medal engraving) and GMM merchandising products will be issued together with the bib number.
The bib number is not transferable! The transponder for timekeeping is integrated in the personal bib number.
