This popular race takes runners through the Vaud countryside.
One of Switzerland’s most beautiful marathon routes, the Lausanne marathon follows the scenic waterfront of Lake Geneva through the vineyards of Lavaux. Despite its late October date (snow has descended in previous years), it’s a hugely popular event, attracting thousands each year. As well as the full marathon, the event offers a 10km, a half-marathon and Nordic walking events. On the previous day kids can get involved too, participating in five runs from 600m to 3km.
The deadline for final enrolment is October 6 (post) and October 17 (online).
