the marathon will offer the runners a unique loop on Sunday, May 3, which will combine the most beautiful assets of the city of Geneva with the magnificent surrounding countryside. After a first part in the countryside in a dreamlike setting nestled between the Jura ridges and the high Alpine peaks, participants will plunge into the heart of the harbour, discover the symbolic monuments of Geneva (the Jet d'eau, the flowered clock, the Mont-Blanc bridge...), walk along the Rhône before crossing the finish line in the heart of the Jardin Anglais. The departure will be from Chêne-Bourg, which is easily accessible via the Geneva Public Transport network. Parking will also be available near the departure area. The marathon will cross 10 communes of the canton of Geneva: Chêne-Bourg, Thonex, Choulex, Puplinge, Presinge, Jussy, Gy, Meinier, Collonge-Bellerive, Cologny before reaching Geneva
organised on Sunday 3 May 2015, at the same time as the marathon, the Half-Marathon offers a more urban route of 21.1 km in the heart of Geneva. A course allowing to go along the lake, the Rhone, but also to run while admiring the unavoidable jet. The participants will dive into the heart of the harbour, discover the symbolic monuments of Geneva (the Jet d'eau, the flowered clock, the Mont-Blanc bridge...), for a prestigious finale in the heart of the city.
