Wake Up and Run
Here is a great opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Basel at dawn during an early-morning run with like-minded people. This 5.7 km run, which follows a course mainly along the Rhein, is not timed and takes place on a weekday to promote a healthy lifestyle of starting your workday with sports, a healthy breakfast, and a convivial atmosphere. You can enjoy this experience with friends, colleagues, your family, or alone (spaces are limited to 700 participants).
The run starts at 5:30 in the morning at Theodorskirchplatz, but you are welcome to arrive as early as 05:00. As there is very little or no traffic at this hour, participants can really enjoy the city in a new atmosphere. A cyclist will open the running route, which will be marked with ribbons and luminous arrows; guides wearing yellow safety vests will also show you the way.
You can register online until midnight on August 16; the event is limited to 700 participants. The registration fee covers the “Wake Up and Run” sports t-shirt; a wake-up pass (bracelet); a healthy, balanced take-away breakfast including regional products; a reusable cup; and gifts from the sponsors. The participants’ material can only be picked up at the customer service of the Manor store in Basel between August 8 and 17 (for organizational reasons, no materials will be distributed on the day of the event). There will be a warm-up and animation on site on Friday morning starting at 05:00.
Registration fee for singles is CHF 38 for adults and CHF 15 for kids up to age 16.
