Green Marathon Zurich

Project development and implementation

Client: internal project
What: Signposted route of 42 km through the green spaces of the city of Zurich
Where: City of Zurich
Launch: 21 May 2017
Link: Green Marathon Zurich on Facebook

Since 21 May 2017, the 42 km long route of the „Green Marathon Zurich“ connects the most picturesque urban oases throughout the city. The running course leads from the city center to the lake, passing by meadows and nearby forests. It is ideal for stage races, hikes and walks as well as a training area. The route offers stunning views over the city and the lake.

The course can be used year-round. The stages can be cho-sen freely and are easily accessible all over the city by public transport or are within walking distance. For orienta-tion purposes route field, km indication and information pa-nels are fixed on the existing hiking and urban network.

Together with marathon organizer Bruno Lafranchi, Zu-rich Hiking Trails and Zurich Tourism, gutundgut built up the project during four years. The most important sponsoring partner is the innovative running shoe com-pany „On“ from Zurich. Furthermore, the project was al-so supported by the public authorities. gutundgut or rather the association founded for this purpose was responsible for the entire project management including lobbying activities, obtaining permits, sponsoring, the graphic implementation (with associate Martina Perrin), creating the homepage, apps, public relation (with associate Petra Reinmöller) and the organization of the opening event with around 300 guests.
