Kick off the fall with the Basel Marathon this weekend—
Sunday, 22 September!
IWB is hosting their fourth annual Basel Marathon on Sunday, called Run to the Beat—a sports event that combines the power of music with a passion for athletics.
In past years, music has been played by live bands at different points on the route, but this time, runners are invited to join in on their own Run to the Beat radio station on iPhones and personal radios. Now everyone can enjoy their Sunday morning just the way they like it—with peace and quiet or a dynamic original soundtrack.
Also new to the marathon this year is a brand new 10k run through the city center. Other courses include the Marathon, Half Marathon, Team-Lauf (Team Run) and Youth-Lauf. It all begins on Freie Strasse and is for everyone, beginner to seasoned runner. The day is complete with refreshments along the way, gifts from sponsors, and an Award Ceremony.
Sign up to run, or stop by to cheer someone on! Find out all the information here.
