Advertising material/posters

Motivate your colleagues to participate in B2Run with our advertising material. You will find all the documents we provide for in the German or French downloads section.

Cancellation

Please note that cancellation of a booked race entry is only permitted with a valid medical certificate for the day of the event. Send it to us by e-mail and you will receive a free race entry for the following season. If you are able to, please let us know before the run.

Instead of a cancellation, you can also pass on your race entry to a colleague. Changes to registrations can be made up to three days before the event by the team captain in their MyB2Run account. After that, changes can only be made directly on site at the info desk. It is also possible to change the name after the run, so that the published result will be allocated to the right person.

Late registrations are possible in the shop until three days before the event and are subject to a surcharge of CHF 5. Changes to registrations can also be made in your MyB2Run account up until that time. After that, the very last late registrations and changes can be made directly on-site at the info desk.

Fans

B2Run is a spectacle for everyone to see. Motivate your non-participating colleagues, friends and family members to cheer you on at the course and in the start/finish area. Everyone is very welcome.

Work colleagues, friends and family members who do not don their running shoes can still benefit from our catering offer. Book separate vouchers for our pasta party in the B2Run shop.

Questions may arise especially on the day of the event. We will be happy to answer them at the info desk.

Rankings

"The fittest"

How many employees are you bringing to the starting line? At each location we are looking for:

  • The fittest small company (companies with less than 50 employees)
  • The fittest medium-sized company (company with 50-250 employees)
  • The fittest large company (companies with more than 250 employees)

The numbers are calculated based on the registration status on the day of the registration deadline (2 weeks before the event). Late registrations will not be taken into account.

In the end of the B2Run season, we will also select the top five fittest companies in Switzerland. To calculate which companies are the fittest, we count how many employees a company has brought to the starting line across all B2Run locations.


"The fastest presented by MINI"

These rankings are about fast times:

  • Fastest women's team (times of the four fastest women within the company are added up)
  • Fastest men's team (times of the four fastest men within the company are added up)
  • The fastest woman
  • The fastest man

 

"The most creative"

Dress up in the most creative manner and get voted as the most creative company of the entire B2Run season by our Facebook community.

To enter the race, you have two options:

  • You have your photograph taken by us at one of our events between 5.30 and 5.50 p.m. on the award ceremony stage.
  • You take your own photo and send it to us by no later than 8 July 2019 to info@b2run.ch. It must be recognisable on the picture that it was taken at a B2Run (e.g. with starting number, beach flag, start or finish archway, etc.).

Registration

This is how you move your company and colleagues at the B2Run events:

  • The team captain sets up a MyB2Run account.
  • Book the desired number of race entries in the shop. The shop for the 2019 season opens at the end of November 2018.
    - With a fixed group booking of 20 runner packages, additional race entries can be reserved and a company-specific registration page can be activated.
    - You can choose between the runner package and the runner package including pasta party.
    - Whether for runners or nordic walkers, the same runner package can be booked for everyone.
  • Naming of the runners
    - As soon as the race entries are booked or reserved, the runners can be named in the account.
    - Employees can register individually via a link on the company-specific registration page. The team captain can see a listing of all the registered participants in the MyB2Run account.
    - The distinction between runner and nordic walker can be made when allocating the names.
  • Registration changes
    - Participants can be renamed in their MyB2Run account at any time up until the registration deadline (two weeks before the run).

If you have any questions, we are glad to help via e-mail or by phone on +41 41 726 17 11.

Starting procedure

To keep the flow of runners moving on the course as smoothly as possible, a number of different starting blocks are provided at the start of each B2Run. We ask all participants to line up according to their expected finishing time. You will find the following starting blocks in the starting area:

Starting block

Who is this starting block suitable for?

<25 minutes

You are very fit and ambitious to achieve a fast time. Thanks to regular training several times a week, you achieve a speed better than 4.5 minutes/kilometre over the full distance.

25-30 minutes

You are in shape, you do a lot of sports and you run regularly. It is not just about being there - you want to really get a fast time.

30-35 minutes

It is not the first time you have put on your running shoes, and you like to do sports. You will not cross the finish line with the leaders of the race, but you are quite a fast runner.

>35 minutes

You are a beginner or occasional runner and have not prepared yourself specifically for participating in this run. Or: For you it is mainly about enjoying the run and you simply want to have fun with your colleagues and the other participants. Your result is more of a secondary concern.

Walking

You are registered in the "Walking" category, or you will walk instead of run the whole distance.

At the events in Basel, Bern, St. Gallen and Zurich, there are also different starting times in order to improve the flow of runners. Since the net time is evaluated at B2Run (see "Timekeeping"), you can run for victory from any starting time. The starting time is chosen by the team captain when booking the runner package. Within each start time, the starting grid is set up according to the starting blocks listed above. Please note that participants in the Walking category will automatically be allocated to the last start time.

Timekeeping

At B2Run, we measure your running time using a timing chip that works like a stopwatch. This means you and all the other participants are given their individual time.

The timing chip is attached to your bib. The timekeeping starts automatically when you cross the starting line and it ends automatically after you have passed the finish line.

Thanks to this system, it does not matter whether you cross the starting line immediately after the starting signal, or line up at the back and only get to start a bit later. The time measurement only begins from the moment you cross the starting line.

Valuables

We provide free safe storage for valuables of all participants. Please put your valuables in your starter bag and bring it to the safe storage facility. After the race, your starting number serves as the collection slip for your valuables. The safe storage facility is signposted.

No liability is accepted for theft, damage or losses.

Walking / Nordic Walking

Walkers/Nordic walkers are most welcome at the B2Run Swiss Company Run. In order to offer all participants the best possible running experience, there is a separate starting block for all walkers/nordic walkers.

For safety reasons, nordic walking is only permitted in the starting block provided for this purpose at the last starting time. Thank you.
