5 challenges to rise above, during and after the race

More than just a race, Run Mate has also some team challenges in store, with prizes to reward the best teams.

Become the king of the Geneva Lake Quiz

How does it work?

The quiz is composed by 29 questions, 1 per relay point. When you pass through each relay point, you will find a sheet with 1 question and 3 answers to choose from (1 true, 2 false). The mates will have to go on each relay point to get the questions. These will be about the culture and the history of the Lake Geneva area.

You will need to scan the QR code with your mobile phone to get the question online. Don’t worry, you don’t need an app to scan the QR code, you can use the camera of your phone to do it.

You answer it and that’s it.

The results

The team with the most correct answers will win this challenge. The results of the questions can be found here.


Team 94 “Team Cheh” won this challenge with 25 correct answers out of 29.

The final ranking of all the teams is available here.

How does it work?

Once all the team are gone running, we will publish a photo album on our Facebook page with all your team photos. You will only have a few hours to share your photo with your contacts in order to get the most of “likes” possible.

Pick up the most cigarette butts you find on the track

How does it work?

Pick up the most cigarette butts you can find during the race.

Be careful:

You have to bring your own container and gloves (gardening, latex, etc…). The organization will not provide you one.

The results

Once the cigarette butts are collected, simply bring them back to the finish and the organisation will weigh them. The team with the heaviest weight will win the challenge. The results will be given at the finish.


Team 249 “Evian Express” won this challenge with a weight of 106 grams.

  • Segment 5 (Villeneuve- Le Bouveret) : 1750m flat
