Re: Running Club , Beginners Course, Basel

I really recommend these sessions for people who are wanting to get fit, but are uncertain about how to go about beginning to run, or who need the motivation of others to get started. The running club is a lso a great place to meet up with others for some good social ties as well.

There is a local running group that meets early mornings but I don't have any details, sorry.

However, you can't go wrong if you just go for a run along the edge of the river - start either side and then cross at any bridges to get in a picturesque circuit. I recomend running up as far as the dam, crossing it and then back down on the otherside - you will be in a park along the left bank and quiet riverside paths with pleasant views for most of the right bank.

Hi Biff
Cheers for the reply. Yeah, i think i will stick to the river bank. I was hoping to see
the City through the runs as time for the rest of the day and evening is very tight.
Maybe some other time.
Thanks again.

www.baselrunningtours.ch is a commercial, but novel and fun way to go for a run and to learn some of the interesting and quirky features of Basel at the same time.
