Zurich Makes you Run – Zurich’s 15th Marathon

Earlier Date for Zurich Marathon – Sunday 9th April

On Sunday, 9th April 2017 over 9’000 people are expected to take part in Zurich’s 15th Marathon, 8th Teamrun, and 6th Cityrun. Under the slogan “Zurich makes you run”, runners will take the route from Zurich Mythenquai to Meilen and back. Included in the package will be a free return journey on SBB home for all participants. The Zurich Marathon is varied and fast paced and 70% of all participants achieve new personal bests in this race. Usually the marathon takes place a little later in April but this year it’s on the 9th April.

New perk: free journey travel to Zurich and back
If you’re taking part in the Zurich Marathon, the Cityrun, or the Teamrun in 2017 you can now get free public transport from your home to Zurich and back. You will receive a personal promo code which you use online at  www.sbb.ch/ticketshop to get your free second class return ticket. The ticket is only valid for the registered participant.

Marathon novice?
The organisers of the 15th Zurich Marathon are hoping to have amongst their participants as many people running their first marathon ever. They are looking for 4 people whose experiences they can report on for their “Four Paths to Your First Marathon” project and the only requirement is that the Zurich Marathon is your first marathon ever. If you’re interested in taking part email  info@zuerichmarathon.ch by 18th December 2016.

The Cityrun and Teamrun 
Not up to doing the Zurich Marathon on your own? No worries. Why not do the Cityrun which is  9,85km long and goes via the city centre of Zurich? Or maybe the Teamrun, in which the usual marathon route is divided amongst four people, with segments of 4, 11,7, 9, or 17,5 km, and all of you reach the finish line together?
