CO2 compensation for a sustainable event

Share news

The SwissCityMarathon is committed to an event that is as environmentally friendly as possible.

When registering for the SwissCityMarathon - Lucerne, participants had the opportunity to donate an environmental franc voluntarily. This year, more than 3,000 Swiss francs were collected. This enabled 90 tonnes of CO2 to be offset. The proceeds from the SwissCityMarathon will be used to support the Oberallmeindkorporation's Central Switzerland project for reforestation and forest management in Canton Schwyz.

Sustainable and comfortable travel to Lucerne
75% of the CO2 emissions caused by the SwissCity Marathon were caused by participants travelling to the event. Thanks to the Swiss Runners Ticket, participants can travel free of charge from anywhere in Switzerland. The Swiss Runners Tickets has an impact: Seit der Einführung steigt die Nutzung der ÖV zur Anreise konstant und liegt aktuell bei über 70%. The environmentally friendly Swiss Runners Ticket will also be included in the entry fee for the SwissCityMarathon - Lucerne for the next few years, certainly until 2022. You too can help to reduce CO2 emissions and travel by public transport in the future. Thank you!
