Swiss Running is initiating an innovative new concept in Lucerne on the Rotsee.
From 1 January RUN365 will offer runners a fixed route with time measurement. Participants can complete alone and independently of time or compete ‘virtually’ on an online ranking list. It starts with a pilot phase with runners, unlike in virtual races, completing the same official route so that times are comparable. Once in possession of the timing chip, the route can be completed daily.
The Rotsee offers rich wildlife – beavers and many species of birds – but is also valued by joggers as a popular training route. Beautiful riverside paths and the view of the Pilatus make for a refreshing run. The idyllic route measures 6.4 km. Two measuring points in Lucerne – at the Rotsee rowing centre and shortly after the Seehüsli restaurant – are defined as the start and finish for the Rotsee circuit.
Participation is possible via smartphone or with a timing chip. Timing is in operation between 05.00–22.00. Times of all participants will be published in the online ranking list.
