The concept is simple: You will be able to run a relay running race around Lake Geneva!
Starting and finishing in Pully, come join the adventure this September!
The packages will be :
- Pack Team, teams of 6 to 9 runners
- Pack Ultra, teams of 2 to 5 runners
A 10% discount will be offered to teams with students (5 students minimum for the Pack Team, 3 students minimum for the Pack Ultra).
Each “Mate” can run multiple relay legs around the lake, to help their team complete the full loop! Each team is free to organise their relay legs as they wish in order to complete over 200km of running. The breath-taking route promises a number of memorable moments and incredible viewpoints, as participants get to appreciate the beauty of this Franco-Swiss course around the lake. In total, 29 communes in the cantons of Vaud, Valais and Geneva, as well as the French department of Haute-Savoie, will host relay points along the route.
The course will be divided into 29 relay legs of various different distances and difficulties. Team members can alternate as they wish throughout the course, exchanging their runner at the relay points of their choice. The rest of the team drive by van/car to the next relay point whilst one of their team members runs, cheering them on in the process. On top of race around the lake, a number of out-of-race challenges will take place throughout the event, based around the culture of the Lake Geneva. Competitions will also take place for clubs, companies, groups and students.
The adventure will take place over 2 days and 1 night. The start will be given in Pully on the Saturday (exact start time still depending on times predicted by registered teams). All “Mates” will get to experience something unique as they run into the sunset on the Saturday evening and out of the darkness during sunrise on the Sunday morning. The race will finish once again in Pully on the Sunday, with the achievements of participants marked by a big post-race party and celebration lunch.
Registrations are open, with an early-bird registration fee in effect until the 15th of April at midnight. Head to https://www.runmate.org/en/register right now to register at the best price!
