Running clubs in Zug or Basel?

Anyone know of any good i.e. sociable/ enjoyable etc running clubs in either Zug or basel? I like running, at my best do 7.3min/ miles for 1/2 marathon...but am not at that level at the moment. I started at Portsmouth running club 20 years ago!! and the general idea was always to be able to have a chat here and there, it was great and a good way to improve.
Alternatively is there a site for finding clubs?
Thank-you

Re: Running clubs in Zug or Basel?

Hi nicnac,

I can't help with Zug, but here's a few suggestions for Basel...

In Basel there is the Hash House Harriers (branches found worldwide): http://basel.harrier.eu.org/
I did a run or two with them a while back, very social and friendly, including beer stops en route !

Or if you're looking for something a little more serious, this club is also in Basel: http://www.lauftreff.ch (unfortunately only in German), but has some useful links on the site too.

There's a club that trains in Muttenz (just outside Basel). I'm afraid I'm not very helpful here, as I don't know what they're called or much about them as I only went along once with a colleague, but they meet and train Wednesday night at the track in Muttenz and along the Birs (river), and there were a few english speakers too! (sorry for complete vagueness!.. If it's interesting for you I will try to find out more.)

This site offers lots of info on running Switzerland (also not in english):
http://www.swiss-athletics.ch/index....bild=links.jpg (there's a couple of links to clubs in Zug in that list)
http://www.swiss-athletics.ch/lauftreff/lauftraeff.php

I hope that offers you some pointers!

Hey Jo,

Have you been running with the Zurich hashers yet? Their boss guy, Chainsaw lives in Oerlikon too. I ended up at a party there after this year's Sola run. I think they finish their runs there quite often
