They say running is healthy, makes you look good, makes you smarter, boost self-confidence and increases life expectancy.
They Color my Geneva team is always looking for the news trends and hot spots in the Greater Geneva area. We have drinks at a crowd funding luanch event for the movie “Genève Demain”, we have diner at Joel Dicker’s favourite place “Saveurs d’Italie”, and we shake our booty at a party at the Village du Soir until morning… The result is that we gain a few kilos, we exhaust ourselves and loose a part of our “mojo”. We are now taking matters back in our hands: summer is coming and we are going to start running! And because we love you, we share our favourite spots to run in Geneva.
Running out doors
Geneva offers several “Parcours santé” that allow you to run in natural environment. See you at the Centre Sportif in Vessy, Evaux, Bois-des-Frères or Bout-du-Monde.
We have counted 8 different Parcours Vita in Geneva. Great for families, it’s a prefect option for a sporty outing.
Running by the lake
Left bank vs. right bank, or from the left to the right bank for the bravest (or vice versa). From Cologny to the Botanical Gardens, the lakeside offers an exceptional surrounding for a sports program made in Geneva.
The Color Run
After the warm up, here comes the competition, or almost. The Color Run is the most colourful race there is. Open to all, it defines itself as “the happiest 5km on earth”. The next edition will take place on the 27th of August in Lausanne. More information and registration on their website www.thecolorrun.ch
Here are a few apps that will help you reach your goals: Nike+ Running, Runkeeper, Runtastic, Strava, Endomondo, and the very fun « Zombies Run »!
We wish you a fit and fun run and we will see you on starting line of the next Course de l’Escalade.
