Lausanne Marathon

The start of the Lausanne Marathon in 2008.

The Lausanne Marathon or Marathon of Lausanne is an annual marathon race held in the Swiss city of Lausanne since 1993. This road running takes place in autumn (October) and the 20 km of Lausanne takes place in spring (April).

Parallel to the marathon, a half-marathon, a 10 km, a 10 km walking and Nordic walking, and a mini-marathon race of 4 km are organised. The Lausanne Marathon is one of the rare Swiss races that organises a half-marathon for wheelchairs and handcycles.

The Lausanne Marathon is one of the largest annual sporting events of the Canton de Vaud, and attracts up to 2,500 tourists each year. In 2009, a record 10,658 runners participated.


The first edition was held in 1993, with the inauguration of the Olympic Museum. Ethiopia's Tesfaye Eticha won the men's competition for a record seventh time.


The arrival of the Marathon of Lausanne is located in front of the fountain of the Olympic Museum in Ouchy.

The race starts in Lausanne, Place de Milan (next to the Parc de Milan), and then follows the road along the Lake Léman until La Tour-de-Peilz, before returning to Lausanne via the same route. The arrival is located in front of the Olympic Museum fountain. The half-marathon (21 km) starts from La Tour-de-Peilz (since 2000) and ends in Lausanne.
