44th Course de l'Escalade


Course de l'Escalade is a festive and popular pedestrian race whose 44th edition will take place on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th of December 2022 in the Old Town of Geneva.

A joyful sporting and popular festival, the Course de l'Escalade brings together, every first weekend of December, runners from all walks of life, making it the biggest pedestrian race in Switzerland and one of the most important in Europe.

The subtlety of the event lies in the double mission that its Committee has given itself:

  • The Race must be popular, welcoming and beneficial in order to work for the community, by raising awareness of the benefits of regular physical activity.
  • The Race must also be highly competitive and coveted by the elite of national and international level, the latter offering a quality show and serving as an example to young people.

This ingenious mix of joy and seriousness brings together public institutions, sponsors and partners, schools and associations in a collective effort, in the magic of the Geneva winter, to promote the values of the Race: fun, respect, solidarity, integration and excellence.
