The SwissCityMarathon – Lucerne is THE marathon in Switzerland and always takes place on the last Sunday in October. The course is a circuit in the length of a half marathon with start and finish at the Swiss Museum of Transport.

From the start, the course leads along the traditional luxury hotels of the city and passes beside the Hofkirche. With a great view of the Chapel Bridge and the water tower, you run in front of the Culture and Congress Centre Lucerne on the other side of the lake. The route continues around the Horw peninsula with a view of the imposing mountain panorama of Central Switzerland along Lake Lucerne. The route then leads through the modern football stadium, home of FC Lucerne, back to the city and through the heart of the KKL Lucerne, into the picturesque old town to the unique finish area in the Swiss Museum of Transport.

The next SwissCityMarathon – Lucerne will take place on October 27, 2024. This is already the 17th edition of the popular running event!
