Looking for a running buddy.

Hello runner/jogger!

Any runner/jogger in Vernier/Meyrin/Satigny area? I normally run in the afternoon and I hate running alone. So many nice route around here but no one around. It's scary and not motivating to run alone.

Re: Looking for a running buddy.

Have you checked out Geneva Runners? They have a very active Facebook group. Meet 3 times a week - Saturday mornings and Monday and Wednesday evenings if I remember rightly. I wish I could run well enough to inflict it on anyone else - my style is currently more 'zombie stumble' than elegant.

Re: Looking for a running buddy.

I had a really bad experience with Geneva runners. Very unfriendly, and first run I went on they didnt explain the course or wait for people. Ended up getting lost. Im not a really slow runner (just did a 10km in 48 min and have run a 3.30 mara) so Id hate to be a slow or new runner running with those guys. Worse still was when I let the organiser know she had a go at me and disputed what happened! Its a shame as running is about being social friendly and getting fit! GOod luck with your search for a running buddy. Im not saying dont go to Geneva runners, just be aware of my experience and perhaps ask someone to run with you when you go or to wait for you if you end up alone.
