Free Weekly Timed 5k Run--WaldRun Zürich
Calendar: Commercial Events
Vogelsang
Newbie 1st class
 
20.05.2017 to 20.12.2017 08:30 to 09:30
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Sport
Location: Altherr-Terrasse, 8057 Zürich

Everything about the WaldRun is simple and free. Register once online, and then show up on any (or every) Saturday and run 5km with a fun group of people in a beautiful, natural setting. Your speed is unimportant and you don't need to consider yourself "a runner". Of course if you want to race it, please do! We'll have prizes for the fastest and most consistent runners through the season. But most will just enjoy the weekly challenge of maintaining or improving their own times.

Modeled after the UK's famous parkrun, WaldRun is about building an inclusive community of runners and promoting healthy habits that keep people fit, happy and engaged with their neighbors.

Registration and more information at www.waldrun.ch

Re: Free Weekly Timed 5k Run--WaldRun Zürich

Seems like a very cool idea, but since it's free, why let it go mostly unnoticed here in the commercial section?


I hope to take part sooner rather than later, but getting into the city on a Saturday isn't likely to happen often!

Users should browse both events sections if they're looking for something to do or to meet new people. The Commercial section has a ton of stuff!

Social Events are those organized by EF members, for EF members - such as our Bern dinner club.

Although this event is free, it's not organized specifically for EF folks and the website where you register is not affiliated with EF. The info is simply being shared here.

There's nothing wrong with that at all, but it means this has been correctly place in Commercial instead of Social. Hope that helps clarify.

Re: Free Weekly Timed 5k Run--WaldRun Zürich

Our first run was very successful--15 friendly people ran in Switzerland's very first WaldRun. And it was very expat-friendly--lots of english being spoken! Plus a nice range of ages, from 25 to 50.

I've uploaded some photos to facebook

Come join us next next Saturday, or any other Saturday you choose!

After just 8 weeks we now have over 100 people registered! The comment I keep hearing is, "I've been waiting for something like this to come to Zurich!"

Excellent effort!

I know people in the U.K. who only run because there is a local Park run and wouldn't do it otherwise.
