Your running group is waiting for you

We train as a group just for fun or as the first step towards becoming a pro.

Running groups

We have two running groups, one in Geneva and one in Zurich, both of which meet for regular group training sessions. They are both open to anyone who would like to join. This is because we would like to inspire as many people as possible to start running. At the same time, we also offer coaching and other comprehensive support for runners aspiring to a professional career in running. 

Running gives me an incredible amount of energy. I love it! After training with the running group, I always feel full of energy and proud of myself.

Our coaches

Our coaches offer advice and support to help runners achieve their goals. They also put together a tailored running programme and track performance during and outside the training sessions.

All of the Geneva training sessions are led by Tadesse Abraham’s personal trainer and 800-metre vice-world champion at the World Masters in 2015. Olivier Baldacchino has worked as a sports coach for over 20 years.

Marco Rancan trains the running group in Zurich. He’s been a running coach at LC Uster for over 15 years – the very club that also helped Tadesse Abraham on his road to success. Marco Rancan also coaches junior runners who represent their country in a variety of running categories and sports at the highest level in Switzerland and Europe.

“I joined the running group together with my wife and our two daughters. We never miss a single session, because we love them so much. We have already made friends with the other team members.”
