RUNNER’S GUIDE H ARM O NYGENEVEM ARAT HON. C OM


A word from the authorities CANTON OF GENEVA Above and beyond the simple number of participants - more than eighteen thousand - what is also impressive is the number of different nationalities represented on the start line. One hundred and thirteen! The Harmony Geneva Marathon for Unicef reflects perfectly the international nature of Geneva and the diversity of its population. The event and its eight race formats traverse 13 different communes and features all facets of Geneva from the town centre to the countryside. Geneva is proud and honoured to welcome you for the event. On behalf of the Canton, I wish all the athletes, organisers, volunteers and partners my best wishes for the event. Sport is an opportunity to share and live together and unite society in the process.

Thierry ApothÊloz Conseiller d’Etat

CITY OF GENEVA This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the rights of children, and rather appropriately the 10th year of collaboration between the Harmony Geneva Marathon and Unicef who work to protect the rights of children around the globe. Thus, the participation of children in this year’s event is of particular importance, and marked by the creation of the Parents-Kids race of 1km on the Saturday. A great initiative that matches the City of Geneva’s desire to link youth participation in sport to the development of our city. Sport will once again be the vector of many important life lessons on the 11th and 12th of May in Geneva, and the city of Geneva will be better for it. I want to thank all of you who have decided to take part and take on your own challenge, and wish you all a great race.

Sami Kanaan

Maire de Genève

A word from our partners HARMONY It is with great pleasure and passion that Harmony continues its partnership as title sponsor of the Harmony Geneva Marathon for Unicef for the 6th consecutive year. Our mission as a company is to promote physical activity and well being for all and to support all athletes in the achievement of their goals. This major sporting event in Geneva is an important investment for a local family owned company like ours but it is a reward in and of itself as we see the number of participants increase year on year. Particularly the number of newcomers to the sport who take part in great conditions and with a can-do attitude. We are also delighted to see the creation of the new Parents and Kids race which will help attract some new participants. Our team will also be present at the public training sessions in the lead up to the event in March and April as well as at the Stretching session on the Saturday morning (9am) and at the Family Zumba (3:15pm, Jardin Anglais) in the afternoon. As always, our team will also be present on the start lines of each race to lead you in your warm up. Finally, a new addition on our stand in the Marathon Village this year is a pacing bracelet for runners to help them reach their objective on their race. See you there!

Luciano Luppi

General Director Harmony

UNICEF Dear athletes, for 60 years UNICEF Switzerland and Liechtenstein has been working for the rights of children and young people all over the world who are in severe need. Thirty years ago, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child came into force. Today, UNICEF is proud to be a charity partner for the 10th time at this spectacular event in Geneva. Three anniversary celebrations, all in the name of children’s rights. Without you, our work for children’s rights would not be possible. The Harmony Geneva Marathon for UNICEF is an ideal opportunity for you to show your solidarity for the world’s most vulnerable children through the medium of sport. You can help to support UNICEF as soon as you register for the Harmony Geneva Marathon for Unicef. You can also open your own fundraising page and encourage your nearest and dearest to sponsor your run for UNICEF. This year, your donations will once again be used to fund water pumps. There are still 884 million people around the world who are drinking polluted water; but clean water is the foundation of life. In small but crucial steps we are changing this situation together for children at risk: Since this partnership began, we have raised over 350,000 Swiss francs and been able to buy a total of 850 water pumps. Our goal for 2019 is to install a total of 1,000 hydraulic pumps. Please help us to do this for the children!

On behalf of UNICEF Switzerland and Liechtenstein, I would like to thank you in advance, dear runner, for your involvement and commitment, and wish you every success on the day.

Bettina Junker

Director, UNICEF Switzerland and Liechtenstein
