  • 16 June 2024 - Together Run

    Together Run will take place at Parc des Evaux on Sunday 16 June 2024 starting at 9:00. The event includes four races and all details are on their website.

    This event, supported, among others, by the Republic and Canton of Geneva and the Fondation des Évaux, was created in 2021 to celebrate World Refugee Day. It is a popular and intercultural race with integration through sport being at the heart of the project.

    The objective is to highlight the inclusive values of sports, fostering integration for people of all backgrounds. It's a festive event for families, offering migrants a chance to build connections beyond their usual circles.

    For more information visit their website.
