The SwissCityMarathon - Lucerne has a special offer for members of the Swiss Armed Forces. With a contingent of 250 starting places, the Swiss Armed Forces offers its members a starting fee subsidised by the Armed Forces with the aim of promoting sports awareness among the members of the Swiss Army. They pay only one franc per kilometre, whether in the 10KM, half-marathon or marathon category.
The physical capability of the troops is a prerequisite for the basic and operational readiness of the army. Off-duty sporting activities and competitions such as participation in the SwissCityMarathon - Lucerne contribute to increasing the fitness and thus the performance of the mermbers of the Swiss Army.
In addition to a special starting number, the members of the army can look forward to their own ranking, so the army champion in the marathon, half marathon and 10KM will be awarded and will later be given a prize in Magglingen.
