Join us in Geneva on Wednesday 15th November, 2017 at 8pm for a 5k/10k run.

Your 30 CHF donation will play a big part in helping the Mark Pollock Trust to reach its 570,000 CHF fundraising aim this year to fast-track a cure for paralysis, which will change the lives of millions of paralysed people around the world.

This year's pop-up run is championed by Gwendoline De Ganay.

The Route:

The start line will be located just in front of the iconic Jet d’Eau in Eaux-Vives. We will head out to Genève Plage on Quai de Cologny to take in the lake view, and then loop around to catch the city lights as we run back and across the bridge to the finish line at the end of Quai Wilson (before Pac Mon Repos).

The After Party: 

After the race has finished all runners are encouraged to reunite at The Grand Duke Pub at Rue de Monthoux 8 in Paquis for post-run sociables to refuel.
