Runner on the ground - FRANCOIS

The Geneva Highlights running tour gives you an enjoyable and easy run in the city. With 6.8 miles / 11 km at your feet, this running tour leads you past the unmissable touristic spots. From stunning views of the Mont-Blanc to narrow cobbled stone streets and the secret passages of the old town, this tour is a whirlwind of impressions and a true insight to Geneva.

This running tour will guide you through the different neighborhoods, showing the best each of them have to offer: galleries and craft shops, trendy cafés, nightlife, park as well as architectural, historical and industrial heritage … and much more.

You will discover the medieval part of town starting from the water jet and then passing the beautiful Flower Clock. Then it is time to climb the former defense wall of Geneva, circle the cathedral, the old university and its secular park of the Bastions hosting the Reformation Wall. The running tour continues along the river banks to reach the charming Carouge, the Sardinian town and its beautiful market place, ancient churches and temples. Runners will enjoy several spectacular views along the bay and there is plenty of time to take photos by the main attractions.

This is an easy and flat route, and a running tour that suits all levels. You will have the opportunity to stop for pictures anytime you wish. We will pass several water fountains along the running route, so you don’t need to bring water.

Geneva Highlights is the unforgettable running experience for those who wants to see and feel Geneva for the first time!

    A great way to get inspired!

    Running with Pauline is a “must do” for anyone who wants to get an amazing workout at 6:30 am and deepen their understanding of this beautiful and complicated city. She was born and raised here and so knows it like the back of her hand. She also has a unique perspective regarding its culture and diversity, having spent her career as a performing artist and dancer. Both my husband and I came away from our running experience with tired legs (in a good way) as well as a far better and more nuanced sense of the character of the city. This running experience was a true gift to us and one that we won’t soon forget!

    Wake up run in Switzerland’s most international city

    Andro

    Booked the tour on a Friday morning at 6:00am – François was on time and we immediately started our run. I was in Geneva 25 years ago, but I kind of forgotten what the city has to offer. François guided me to the usual touristy places and shared stories of the city. A very nice way to wake up and say good morning or better Bonjour Geneva! Merci François! I highly recommend this tour to everyone who likes running in the city!

    An excellent way to see the City

    Tom

    I had the afternoon in Geneva to myself before meeting my partner the next day, and didn’t want to try and explore the City on my own – without knowing where to go or being able to learn more information about it, and I came across this tour. The tour was fantastic from start to finish. François picked me up from my hotel and took me on the tour at a pace that worked for us both, with plenty opportunities to stop for photos, information, and drinking the clean water from the fountains across the City. I learned a lot about the City whilst running through and chatting with François who was very knowledgeable and told me loads of interesting things which I then used to show my partner around the City when she arrived the next day. Thank you François for an experience I will never forget!

    Highlight of my trip

    Lauren Griffith

    I can’t say enough about how wonderful my run was yesterday! I only had one day in Geneva on my business trip, but Francois helped me see so much in so little time. We had a lot of fun, and he was really kind to let me go at my (much slower) pace. I compared notes with a colleague after our respective days in the city, and I had seen more and learned more than I ever though possible in such a short time. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

    The BEST way to see Geneva!

    Avishai

    Had a wonderful time with François! We ran 13km in Geneva, and as a city planner, he was able to tell me lot more details and fun trivia about Geneva, than an ordinary tour guide. Thank you <3

    Get running before the Jet d’Eau

    Patrick Quan

    As with any Go! Running tour, we expect to be treated to an early morning tour of a new city that covers both the familiar and unfamiliar. The bonus is when we get an extra special guide like Charles whose warm nature and easy smile made for an invigorating morning in Geneva, the delights of which may not be particularly obvious to the casual visitor. You may even crash a formal city hall ceremony or contemplate the union of a cloudy French river and a clear Swiss river or stand in awe of a bridge that only Rolex could build. Highly recommended, particularly for first-time visitors.

    Amazing way to see Geneva!

    Caroline & Frederik

    What a great way to combine a sporty run with sightseeing. Charles met us promptly at the agreed time at the main trainstation. He regularly checked the pace and, despite us being average runners, we easily ran over 13k in almost two hours. The trail took us along the lake, into the Old City, across Plainpalais past the Rolex headoffice to the junction of the Rhone and Arve river. There is a bit of elevation, but nothing too difficult. Charles is a great host and makes regular stops to share interesting facts about the city; both historic and current. Do take advantage of his architectural knowledge. Although we would have loved to hear even more details, we can understand this has to be balanced with the available time. Charles surely took his time and was flexible to accommodate the route. He carried a bag for our phone and happily took pictures. We never felt pushed and loved the active way to enjoy the city. Highly recommended!

    Geneva at 630pm

    Martin Fabregas

    Charles met us promptly at 630pm in our hotel and was very nice.
    He always checked to make sure pace was OK and the run tour of Geneva was just amazing. When it got a bit dark he lent us his lamps for safety. Even if Geneva has water fountains everywhere, he still brought extra water for us. Big THANK YOU to Charles for an amazing run and sharing your knowledge of this wonderful city.

    The Geneva high lights tour was a great way to see Geneva and get a good exercise at the same time. Francois was very informative and understanding of our group needs and wishes. Can highly recomend this tour.
