Running clubs/twaekwondo/circuit training in Basel

I'm planning to relocate to Basle or the surrounding area with my family and I was hoping that someone could let me know if there are any of the following:

- Running clubs or groups of people that I can go out running with approximately twice a week.

- Twaekwondo classes in english that I can attend with my six year old daughter.

- Circuit training classes

Search for Hash House Harriers for the running.

I'm getting a feeling of deja vu here...

I'll be in Basel from March 12th.

We can run together a couple of times a week if you want.

I don 't think the Harriers are my cup of tea.

Re: Running clubs/twaekwondo/circuit training in Basel

Hopefully, I'll be relocating in April/May.

I usually run 5-7 miles at about 9 mph. When I go running on my own I do road running and cross country (which I prefer) when I go with a club. How about yourself ?

I looked at the harriers and I'll probably go when I've enough spare time to run and socialise at the weekend.

However, I thought that groups of people would meet up several times a week for runs.

It does, in the form of CrossFit (which includes circuit training elements): CrossFit Basel (SFW)

From the website: "CrossFit training incorporates the best of weightlifting, gymnastics and metabolic conditioning. We train functional moves at high intensity."

More background information is available here: CrossFit.com - What is CrossFit (SFW)

There are also CrossFit gyms opening in Zurich in the next few months, those would be closer to you. PM me if you want additional information on CrossFit and the locations in Switzerland.

Hope that helps
