Registration Virtual Challenge 2020

As the SwissCityMarathon - Lucerne cannot take place as usual this year, we offer you the unique opportunity to run a 10K, a half marathon or a whole marathon in your region and thus be part of the SwissCityMarathon 2020. Together with you we would like to run (at least) 10'292KM!

Our aim is to get all enthusiastic sportsmen and women and the local population to run despite the cancellation. The experience will be different from what you know, but it will be a special experience. With the Challenge we would like to encourage you and many other runners to put on your running shoes and support us. Because your participation shows that you support us as running event organiser in our efforts to offer you another unforgettable experience next year and that you are committed to running, exercise and health. Thank you very much!

Your training sessions over the spring and summer have not been in vain. Grab your running friend and run a 10K, half marathon or marathon at your home on the weekend of 24/25 October. Every participation counts! You can then enter your running time and a picture of your run online.

And this is how it works:

  •  Register online for the SwissCityMarathon - Lucerne: Virtual Challenge 2020: Online registration
  •  Run 10K, a half marathon or a marathon on the weekend of 24/25 October and take your time with your smartphone or your running watch
  • Tell us via link in your registration confirmation your personal running time you needed for your track - we do not need to mention that truthful entries are a matter of honour ;-)
  •  We will send you your personal diploma by e-mail as soon as you have reported your running time
  • Send us a photo of your run by e-mail or via the link and share it on social media with the #swisscity marathon or mark us via @swisscity marathon

We will publish the best 42 photos on our website on Monday 26 October 2020.

Please follow the rules of Social Distancing when running and only go for a run when you feel healthy.

Among all participants we will raffle 10 FREE STARTS for the SwissCityMarathon - Lucerne 2021! The winners of the competition will be notified by e-mail on Tuesday 27 October 2021.

Can we run 10'292 KM together? We count on you and look forward to your pictures!
