Looking for a running buddy zurich

Hi,

I am trying to get back into running and some training after a few months hiatus. Looking for a similar paced running partner who would be interested in a long weekend run or one or two weekday runs in zurich area (evening or early morning). I am an 8:30-9 min mile pace (5-6ish min km). Or if you know of any group runs, also interested in that.

Thanks!

Caitlin

Re: Looking for a running buddy zurich

Hi Caitlin,

I work in Zurich and stay in Lachen, relatively new to Switzerland and love running, especially trail runs. Around weekdays, some weekends. Training for a marathon in September so same short runs midweek, longer runs at the weekend.

Cheers
Gordon

Re: Looking for a running buddy zurich

I've been running in Zürich for a while and have been along with city running a few times, who I discovered quite recently (cityrunning.ch). It's german-speaking, but there are a few internationals and the group in general is friendly and open to everyone. It's also good for having someone who knows where they are going to lead the runs - you end up finding out all sorts of interesting paths and parts of zürich.

If you're a student, or have any links to the university the ASVZ also have a good range of running groups/training sessions.

Re: Looking for a running buddy zurich

Hi Cait,

I just moved to the Zürich area and would be up for a run if you fancy it. In fairness, I am just trying to enjoy my running (ran 2 marathons earlier in the year) although my pace is closer to 5 min/km. I would not mind running a bit slower than that though.

Regards,
Chris

Re: Looking for a running buddy zurich

Thanks for the suggestion about Cityrunning.ch, I went along suited and booted as I was too late to run today but I wanted to see what the group looked like, with the intention of running from next week. Looks great, was about 15 in the group, mixture of age groups, all very friendly! Was chatting to a guy that said the group is constantly changing. So see you next week! Cheers! Would be great if we could face to names from this thread!

Re: Looking for a running buddy zurich

Felsey... were you there last night? I generally only do the Sunday runs, but I should be there this Sunday, so we can try to say hi if you'll be there.

Re: Looking for a running buddy zurich

Hi Luckylou, I was there but in a suit just wanted to get a feel for the group size etc. Will be back in the UK for the next couple of weekends but around for the run on Weds this week, going to come along? BTW asked about where people change, apparently people just do their own thing. My office is close by so ok! Pal of mine says lido is also an option for changing/showering. Be great if we could get a few of us together!

Unfortunatly I run with the ASVZ on a Wednesday evening (it's more of a training session than just a run which i like during the week). But maybe one Sunday in a while we'll see each other! It'd be good to have some more internationals in the group!
