Soup run on 04. December 2021
Together with the 100 Marathon Club Switzerland, we ran on the beautiful Green Marathon route towards Witikon. There, we were awaited by the Community Center from 11:00 am with hot soup and homemade Zopf.
Do not worry about the intimidating word "marathon", we run together, the slowest determines the pace. Depending on the number of participants, groups will be formed. Those who want to continue running after the refreshments are invited by the 100 Marathon Club. All marathon participants will receive a certificate.
The soup run is not a competition, 100% of the donations will go to the community center's coffers.
Green City Run - Women Edition
Anyone can run a marathon - just not the whole thing at once! On July 3rd, hobby joggers, casual walkers, club runners and marathon runners ran the first stage of the Green Marathon route in Zurich with us - without starting numbers, without rankings and at their own pace.
Moving together is fun, inspiring and enables new encounters. As part of the Switzerland-wide “100% Women” campaign, the Green Marathon Association has planned a stage on the Green Marathon (5 or 10 km).
