CERN Road Race

The 2013 edition of the annual CERN Road Race will be held on Wednesday 18th September at 18:15.

More information, and the online entry form, can be found at

The 5.5 km race takes place over 3 laps of a 1.8 km circuit in the West Area of the Meyrin site, and is open to everyone working at CERN and their families. There are runners of all speeds, with times ranging from under 17 to over 34 minutes, and the race is run on a handicap basis, by staggering the starting times so that (in theory) all runners finish together.

 

Children (< 15 years) have their own race over 1 lap of 1.8 km. As usual, there will be a “best family” challenge (judged on best parent + best child).

 

Trophies are awarded in the usual men’s, women’s and veterans’ categories, and there is a challenge for the best age/performance.

Every adult will receive a souvenir prize, financed by a registration fee of 10 CHF. Children enter free (each child will receive a medal).
