Run The Planet is proud to introduce our new affiliate Run.com, the best running route resource on the web. If you are looking for a new Lausanne running route, or want to share your favorite Lausanne running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
You can start from anywhere in the Ouchy area of Lausanne (such as the M√∂venpick or Beau Rivage hotels). Follow the lake road (Rhodanie) to the West (towards Geneva) and at any point along the way choose one of the roads heading up into the city (i.e. ch. de Bellerive) until you get to Avenue de Cour. Turn right until you get to a road heading back down to the lake (i.e. Avenue d'Ouchy). You can make this as long or as short as you want. You can repeat the same circuit over and over, judging your fatigue by whether you are able to continue running to the top each time, or are forced to walk. I have often used this course for hill training when I do not have time to go out into the mountains.
