HARMONY GENEVA MARATHON
With an IAAF Bronze level race award for the marathon as well as a halfmarathon and 10k events taking place over the weekend, Geneva makes a great springtime event to consider.
With cheap flights from the UK and a range of hotels available in the city, Geneva offers a pleasant climate for a marathon and could be much cheaper than you might have first imagined.
From the airport, passengers have 80 minutes of free travel on the rail network and it only takes around 20 minutes before you are in the city and within easy walking distance of the majority of hotels.
Hotels also offer free day tickets for use on the city’s transport network so getting around is easy.
The courses for the 10k, half and full marathons start a short bus ride out of town, with each winding their way through the beautiful Swiss countryside before dropping down the lakeside for stunning views of the lake and the surrounding mountains. At the finish line and race village there’s plenty to keep family and spectators occupied, while Lake Geneva, with its famous water jet fountain, provides a stunning backdrop.
