The SwissCityMarathon - Lucerne will take place without a big supporting program due to Covid-19. The support is especially missing for the marathon runners. You can support a runner of your choice with your video. The fan videos will be played on the big LED screen in the FCL stadium and give the marathon runners an extra boost of motivation.
