58 nationalities, more than 11 000 participants... professionals from all over the world come to tread the asphalt to obtain an international qualification, while the amateurs, beginners or experienced sportsmen and women, take advantage of it to live an unforgettable human adventure. The Zurich Marathon has been bringing enthusiasts together since 2003. And since 2020, for three years, Maurice Lacroix is the official timekeeper of the competition which will take place on 26 April in Zurich.
For Maurice Lacroix, this partnership was an obvious choice, as Stéphane Waser, Managing Director of the brand, explains: "Urban, connected, open to the world... this popular event that brings together both enthusiasts and international professionals is in line with our values. We are happy to be able to take part in a project such as this one!"
Sandro Steimer, head of the Zurich Marathon sponsorship, is also delighted with this collaboration, which will enable everyone to measure their performance in detail: "We are pleased that together with Maurice Lacroix we are able to illustrate typical Swiss precision during our country's fastest marathon."
The 18th edition of the Zurich Marathon will take place in the heart of the city and along the right bank of the lake. The course runs from the Mythenquai to Meilen and back to the city centre. This route offers a unique running experience with a measurable level of difficulty. In addition, the marathon offers several possibilities to the participants – who can achieve this performance either in a team of four runners in a relay, solo, or in the short distance version – in order to fully live this experience.
