The Lausanne Marathon has made a name for itself as one of the most beautiful races in Europe. The outstanding natural surroundings of the route provide even more motivation for the more than 14'000 participants. The Lausanne Marathon winds its way between Lake Geneva and the verdant shoreline of the Lavaux vineyards before finishing in front of the fountain at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, the Olympic Capital.
The 42.195 km demand sweat and endurance, but they are also run in a spirit of enjoyment with a warm welcome and a formidable events team delivering faultless logistics.
It is a point of honour for the organisers of the Lausanne Marathon that everyone can participate under the best possible conditions. A warm welcome and tremendous enthusiasm contribute to the impeccable organisation. The cosmopolitan participants have understood that here, they are far more than just a number. The increase in the number of participants is the best proof of this.
The cosmopolitan participants have realised that here they are much more than just a number – and the best proof of this is the fact that registrations have constantly increased. The testing race is held in a very warm and friendly atmosphere with the encouragement and applause of the people of Lausanne.
