«The Green Marathon combines sight-seeing in the beautiful city of Zurich with training in a great way. For ambitious runners, it’s a welcome change, and for those who simply want to explore the city, it’s a great opportunity as well. Even people who have lived in Zürich all their life will discover new parts of the city, where they have never been before. »
