Marathons To Run In Switzerland In 2020

by | Feb 4, 2020 | Running | 0 comments

There are around 100 marathons in Switzerland held every year. The attract not only professional athletes but also amateurs on a large scale. We had a talk with running heroes to make up a Running Calendar for 2020.

Switzerland offers running enthusiasts a multitude of marathons scheduled throughout the year: big, small, crazy, high level, low level, long, shorter, with kids, without kids. The different routes of the Swiss marathons lead through incredible panoramic views and the cleanest mountain air lets runners get their lungs full making their way around the countryside and major city centers.

Sophia had a chance to compare the atmosphere of running events in Geneva and New York. Not so long ago she had an unforgettable experience of taking 42km in the USA. She shared her impressions with SUISSEPIC.

“Harmony Marathon in Geneva is a very “family” event. Supporters stay in front of their houses in a beautiful countryside of Great Geneva. However, a great section of the distance is not covered with the support at all.

In New York the whole city participates in the event. Crowds cheer the participants all along the distance. It supports you so much till the very end. Reading cheering cards and listening shouts you do not notice how kilometers and time pass by”.
