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 members 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 CityRun will be awarded and will later be given a prize in Magglingen.
