Last Saturday we did watch the "Course de l'Escalade" (Escalade run) supporting our son who did participate for the first time.

This foot race (7,332 km) is a part to the celebration of the Escalade. The run is leading through the Old City of Geneva, before finishing near the start again. It is one of the most significant annual events in Geneva. There are options for male races and female races for different age groups classified under year of birth. This run has become very well known and even people from other countries are coming.

This year, for the first time, a woman from England did participate. It's JULIA BLEASDALE who finished at the 8th rank of the 5000m and 10000m run at the Olympic Games in London in 2012 !! In Woman-Elite she finished at the 2nd rank !!
All in all it had 37'000 competitors this year !!! Another proof that this Escalade run has become famous !!
