ANTIGEL-RUN CHALLENGE #Rhône – 6/7.02
Pins and needles in your legs! After a year of dearth with almost no popular races to get their sneakers into, joggers from everywhere are ready to get up and run. Faithful to tradition, Antigel once again offers its Antigel Run, Geneva’s first run of the year, in a revised version due to the health crisis. This year will feature four challenges throughout the four week-ends of the festival, all along the waters of the Arve, the Rhône, the Seymaz and the Aïre. The 5 to 8 kilometre routes are idyllic and original. They meander along pretty paths with little traffic, suitable for seasoned sportspeople, nature lovers and groups, especially families or anyone in search of wonderful sensations and an invigorating breath of fresh air. Two options are offered: a semi-virtual race, with semi-organised, spread out departures and arrivals to avoid crowds, every week-end of the festival between 9 a.m. on Saturday and 7 p.m. on Sunday, and a virtual race with the courses open and marked out from 30 January to 27 February for people to run whenever they wish to. A mobile app will enable you to time yourself. For this “collective” race, Antigel has teamed up with Antidote and Flag 21 to organise four parent/children training sessions in small groups, coached by people from the refugee and asylum centre. These will take place in the outdoor areas of the Hospice General’s collective accommodation centres: la Seymaz, les Tattes, Rigot and Feuillasse. A great opportunity to prepare for the Antigel Run challenge and above all, to chat with migrants. Integration through sports: a heart-warming idea from Antigel and Antidote.
