Swiss City Marathon - Lucerne, Reviewed 30 October, 2018
27 October, 2018
The marathon is actually running the same half-marathon twice. I was a bit afraid of the hills that this course is known for. Several people had been telling me about them, but in the end they were no worse than the ones that I run in on my normal Sunday runs and as they are pretty much in the beginning of the course (and before the 28 kilometer mark on the second passing), so you can really preserve your energy to ensure you conquer them, before that final (pretty flat) last 14 kilometers.
