Switzerland Marathon in 2015?


Here’s an idea for those who may be in shape in 2015! Entry fees are only 45- 65 Euro depending on when you sign up so $60-88…cheap race, and you get to go through 3 countries!  

Skarkasse 3-Laender Marathon – Offering runners the unique opportunity to run through three countries—Germany, Austria andSwitzerland—all in one single race, this 26.2-mile journey starts along the harbor on the island of Lindau, Germany, before taking runners through several Austrian towns, and then crossing the Swiss border and finishing in Bregenz. With 60 percent of the course along the shores of Lake Constance, this race is flat and fast, not to mention that temperatures tend to be moderate in October, when the race is held. Along with the views, the varied terrain, featuring cobblestone, gravel and asphalt, keeps things interesting.
