From Portland to Sao Paulo, Melbourne to New York, our city running guides are all about finding the best urban routes in cities around the world. After traveling far and wide, we returned to Zurich for a reminder of how much our home country has to offer. And we don’t just mean the mountains. That’s why we’ve teamed up with the experts at Switzerland Tourism to source the best routes for you. Scroll down to watch the videos.
Your guide: Mike
To show you around town(s), Mike from Zurich will be your guide. When he’s not busy taking photos or running, the energetic UX Designer tinkers with old motorbikes. But while he loves cruising through the mountains on his bike, Mike is just as big a fan of the Swiss public transport system.
“You don’t need a car to get around in both summer and winter – it’s my favorite thing about living in Switzerland.”
On the weekends, Mike can often be found scouring Zurich’s flea markets for what he calls “weird, obscure objects”. This time around however, he’ll be using his eagle eye to find some of the best urban running spots in Switzerland. And with the help of Switzerland Tourism, Mike’s recommendations are sure to maximize your Swiss running experience. Use the Strava links, run the routes yourself and have fun.
“It’s amazing how much of the city you can take in while running – the energy, the bars and restaurants, the hidden gems.”
