The Marathon committee decided this spring to forgo a classic edition for 2021. This position was based on uncertainties about the evolution of the health situation and the financial consequences generated by a new cancellation as experienced in 2020.
The organising committee is delighted with the launch of this more flexible, more interactive and more accessible edition. From October 13 to November 3, the “covid-compatible” version of the Lausanne Marathon offers the freedom for participants to run or walk on several distances and as many times as desired.
For three weeks, participants will be free to run or to walk, over one or more days, alone or with others, in running mode, walking or nordic walking. They will be able to take part in the 5km, 10km, half-marathon or marathon on the official Lausanne Marathon marked routes or on the routes of their choice. Each participant is then invited to enter their results on an Internet portal to be registered in the general classification.
This mode of race also allows us not to cause any disruption to road traffic. Our goal is to allow each runner to experience a collective sporting experience while respecting health security measures.
Thus, in addition to the common classification and the marked course on the shores of Lake Geneva, each participant receives the official technical t-shirt upon registration 2021, a bib and a train ticket Lausanne-La Tour-de-Peilz in order to complete the half marathon. At the end of the three weeks, a medal engraved with their name will be sent. All for the price of only CHF 29 (EUR 27), an operation rendered possible thanks to the invaluable support of institutions and sponsors.
