14.06.2020 Swiss Women’s Run Bern

Have you dusted off your running shoes and decided on the running distance? The start signal will go off on 14 June 2020 for the largest women’s sporting event in Switzerland.

Each year at the Swiss Women’s Run, over 16,000 female runners race through Bern from Bundesgasse to the Monbijou bridge, then loop through the Kirchenfeld district with a final sprint to the Bundesplatz (Parliament Square). Participants can choose from different routes – the longest course is 15 kilometers – that can be covered either running or (Nordic) walking. There are no age limits.

In addition to the different distances and running and (Nordic) walking categories, there is also a Girls’ Sprint (0.5 kilometers) for young runners as well as the “Girls’ Mile” (1.6 kilometers). Those who prefer running in a group can register as a team. The Women’s Run gets off to a hilarious start with the “High Heel Run”, when the runners first show off their skills with a sprint (in high heels!) over the Bundesplatz (Parliament Square).

Ambitious but still undecided runners can check out the event website for more detailed information about all the categories. Training plans can be downloaded, and running workshops will help with your preparations. Don’t forget: When registering for the Swiss Women’s Run, participants have the option of supporting a charitable organization.
