Yes, it is possible to run several race formats, but you will have to register separately for each distance. Indeed, 1 registration = 1 distance. This means that you will have one booking reference per distance. (For example: if you decide to run the 5km by Generali and the 10km by Romande Energie, you will have a code for the 5km and a different code for the 10km).

You will be able to run the races on different days (or if you really want to challenge yourself, you can run them on the same day). You will need to enter the code corresponding to the chosen distance (if you want to run the 5km on Tuesday, remember to enter the booking code you received for this distance).

The start and finish of the race is in Geneva near the Palais des Nations : Avenue de la Paix, 1211 Geneva, in front of the UN doors, in front of the “Chaise cassée” (Broken Chair) and you can easily get there by public transport.

5km by Generali = 12% trail / 88% road

10km by Romande Energie = 25.5% trail / 74.5% road

20km by Genève Aéroport = 25.5% trail / 74.5% road

During the Race

Rather than having direction signs and stewards on the course, the Geneva by Geneva Airport 2.0km race application will guide you from start to finish (yes, it’s very cool!). There are virtual checkpoints en route that will be automatically validated when you pass them to make sure you’ve done the whole course.

Thanks to the audio-guidance system, you will be guided throughout your run. In addition, you can also always check on the application that you are on the course. However, if you get lost or if you don’t hear the audio guidance for a certain period of time, don’t hesitate to check on the application whether you are on the course. If this is not the case and you have got lost, turn back to take the route back to where you got lost.

You will use the race application. As race day approaches, we will advise you on how to download it and use it to time your race. Remember to have a well-charged phone during your race!

Yes, you will be able to run with a friend or colleague as long as you stay socially apart (1.5 metres apart when running) and you respect the law on the day of your race concerning gatherings of people in Geneva.

Yes, it is possible to compare yourself during the race with two other athletes by indicating their bib numbers. It is necessary that they have already run in order to be compared to them.

There is no time limit for each race. They simply have to be completed before the evend of the event, on November 22.

Yes, headphones and music players are allowed - but don’t forget that the race application will guide you around the course in audio, so you’ll need to hear the directions! The application has been configured to mute your music when one of our audio messages is announced.

You can run with a connected watch but you must run with the application on your phone in order to be able to participate in the challenge and hear the audio guidance.

No, there will be no refreshments provided. You are autonomous.
