New In Winterthur - running

Hello All
I would like to introduce myself to this group. My better half and I have moved to Switzerland after living in the US for almost 10 years. The two of us are currently striving to get better in high German (not swiss german just yet). Both of us are very enthusiastic about our future here in Switzerland.

I am an avid runner and rock climber and would love to meet people to do this with (I will post this in the appropriate groups).

I am also an AVID NFL fan....and I have already bought the season pass to watch all the games at home online. So if any one is interested in some beer and a NFL night..please let me know, we can arrange something

My work permit etc. and other things were done by my firm and it was very simple. We currently have an L permit and I have been informed that I will be getting a B permit later (In about 2 years).

If anyone has any questions or would like to meet up for some activities please feel free to message me on this forum and id be glad to write back with my details etc.etc.

BTW we will in Winterthur on Tösstalstrasse.

Nimit & Raluca.

Re: New In Winterthur - running

There are Hash House Harrier groups in Shaffhaussen, Zurich and Basel ( not all with alcohol problems). Also, the Bsael Dragons running club meet on Monday and Thursday evenings ( all abilities caterd for) and often on Saturday mornings as well. On the last Saturday of NOvember, there is the Basel "Stadtlauf" a public city run through the centre of Basel, including running through the street that has all the Xmas lights. Thousands take part in various age categories. It's a great event to take part part in. Zurich has a similar run before Xmas as well, I think and so do some smaller places . As well, there are many local runs with both fun and serious categories, throughout Switzerland, throughout the year. You will find plenty to take part in whilst enjoying the scenery of Switzerland. Look for the Engleberg winter run - fantastic to be up running
( or xcountry skiing) amongst the alps in mid winter.

For climbing, have a look at the events page as there is often a group who meet for indoor climbing at the excelent climbing gym in Basel - good place to make contacts for outdoor climbing .

Re: New In Winterthur - running

Hi Colin,

I have been near to Frauenfeld for over five years, so if you want some inside information please let ne know. I am a jogger, a little on the old side these days but I am doing the 10K at the end of the month in Stein an Rhein. http://www.staaner-stadtlauf.ch I would be interested in getting together now and again in Winterthur.

Andy

Re: New In Winterthur - running

I am also looking for a running partner/group in Winterthur. I'm new to the sport but want to start training for some upcoming 10K runs in the Spring. Any info would be much appreciated.
