Info mailings to team captains & B2Runners
Team captain info
All information for team captains of the B2Run Genève:
We would like to point out that it is not possible to cancel a booked starting place. However, it is possible to pass on this starting place to a colleague. Such changes can be made by the team captain directly in the MyB2Run account until the late registration deadline (2 working days from the respective event). After that, changes can only be made directly on site at the Infopoint.
Conditions for participation
Apprentice or CEO, walker or PB-chasing runner, employees at companies, local authorities, associations, universities or other institutions, from sole traders to huge corporations - everyone is very welcome!
You will find detailed information on the conditions for participation in our Terms and Conditions.
B2Run is a great spectator event. Encourage your non-running colleagues, friends and family members to cheer you on along the course and at the start / finish. Everyone is very welcome.
Work colleagues, friends and family members who do not don their running shoes can still benefit from our catering offer. As a team captain, book separate vouchers for the After Run Dinner in our shop.
Illness / Absence
In order to eliminate risks and avoid accidents, we ask all B2Runners to only take part in the race if they are in good health. We urge you to follow this advice so that you and your employees can enjoy a great run.
We would like to point out that a booked starting place can only be canceled with a valid medical certificate for the day of the event. Send this to us by e-mail and receive a free starting place for the following season.
Instead of canceling as described above, you can also give your starting number to a colleague. Changes can be made by the team captain directly in the MyB2Run account up to two working days before the respective event. After that, changes can only be made directly on site at the Infopoint.
Late registrations of runners after the registration deadline can be made via our store until the late registration deadline. The designation of the starting places can be done via the registration page or by the team captain in the MyB2Run account under "My participants". Please note that for late registered participants name and company cannot be printed on the start number.
Last-minute late registrations that occur after the late registration deadline can be reported or made directly on site at the Infopoint during the event.
We accept no liability for damage to health, accidents, theft and other losses or damage.
Please note our Terms and Conditions.
If changes in the team (mutations) have to be made after the registration deadline, this can also be done by the team captain until the late registration deadline via the MyB2Run account under "My participants". Please note that these changes cannot be included in the production of the start number after the registration deadline. However, the team captain will receive an updated team sheet with the start numbers on the day of the event and the change will also be made in the ranking list.
Any last-minute changes that occur after the registration deadline can be reported or made directly on site at the Infopoint during the event.
With your MyB2Run account, you as team captain can book starting places for our events in the B2Run online store and manage your participants. Please note that you only need one MyB2Run account per company and that multiple locations can be managed via one account. You also have the possibility to register auxiliary captains. You can find more information about registration and login in the Info section under Registration Process.
Would you like to delete your MyB2Run account? Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. If a booking has already been made, we cannot delete this account, but we can inactivate it. You will then no longer be able to log in.

"The most active"
How many employees are joining you on the start line? At each location we are looking for:
- The most active small company (companies with less than 50 employees)
- The most active medium-sized company (company with 50-250 employees)
- The most active large company (companies with more than 250 employees)
The numbers are calculated based on the registration status at the registration deadline. Late registrations will not be considered.
These rankings are about the fastest times:
- Fastest women's team (total times of the 4 fastest women in the company)
- Fastest men's team (total times of the 4 fastest men in the company)
- The fastest woman
- The fastest man
Your team captain is the one responsible for registering your company with the booking of race entries. Are you a team captain? Then we will show you how to get your company moving at B2Run here.
- You can choose between the Starter Package and the Starter Package including After Run Dinner.
- Whether participants are Runners or Nordic walkers, the same Starter Package can be booked for all of them.
To make this process as simple as possible, the team captain will receive a link to the company-specific registration page by e-mail as soon as the race entries are booked/reserved. The employees can use this to register individually. You can find detailed information and "step-by-step" instructions about the registration process here.
- The team captain can see a listing of all the registered participants in the MyB2Run account and make amendments where necessary.
- Participants can select either Runner or Nordic Walker when entering their details.
- Race entries can be deleted or edited in the MyB2Run account until the registration deadline (two weeks before the race).
The team captain is the person responsible for registering their team and coordinating their participation in B2Run. There is only one team captain per company. He or she opens a MyB2Run account, in which all the registrations, bookings and participants are managed. If you are not organising your team by yourself or are being helped by local colleagues, you can designate assistant captains in your MyB2Run account. Assistant captains can manage participants in the account but cannot make any bookings.
Detailed information on B2Run Genève
Please note that the team captain or their deputy picks up the bibs on the event day for their whole team and then distributes them to the runners. The bib collection stand is right next to the info desk at all events.
You can collect your bibs on race day from 4.30 p.m.
If you as a team captain would like to receive the start documents before the event, you can book the shipping service for start documents with our partner UPS (subject to a charge).
Changing room/shower facilities
We offer you a limited number of changing room and shower facilities on event site. These are located below the stands of the sports centre. Capacity is limited, so you may need to queue.
If you would like to hand over your valuables for safekeeping, bring your starterbag, which you will receive from your team captain alongside your bib, to the valuables safekeeping area. More information on this can be found under "Valuables".

Questions may arise on the day of the race itself. We will be at the info desk to help you with these.
The info desk is located in the start / finish area. Follow the corresponding signs or find it on the site map which we will publish before the event.
We publish the course map (including the elevation profile) and an area map for the B2Run Genève on the event website.
Please note that both plans may be subject to changes at the last minute.
After the run, you can re-fuel at the Pasta Party. You need a voucher to take part.

There are no seating reservations for the Pasta Party. However, if you book a team booth in our webshop, you can order the number of tables and benches (minimum 4 sets) you need, for the exclusive use of your company.
All B2Run Genève results (plus photos and a video of the finish line) will be available on the event page straight after the race.
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:
|Who is this starting block suitable for?
|You are in top form and always aim for a PB. Regular training several times a week means you can run the whole distance faster than 4.5 mins / kilometre.
|You are fit, do a lot of sports and go running regularly. It is not just about being there - you want to really build up some speed.
|It's not the first time you've 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.
|You are a beginner or occasional runner and have not trained specifically for this race. Or: For you it is mainly about enjoyment and you simply want to have fun with your colleagues and the other participants. The time it takes is irrelevant.
|You are registered in the "Walking" category, or you will walk the distance instead of running it.
With B2Run, we measure your running time using a timing chip that works like a stopwatch. This means you and all the other participants receive their individual time.
The timing chip is fitted on your bib. Your time starts automatically as soon as you cross the start line. And it also ends automatically when you cross the finish line.
Thanks to this system, it doesn't matter whether you leave the start line immediately after the starting signal, or line up at the back and only get to start a bit later. Your time only starts when you cross the start line.
This is the (provisional) schedule for the B2Run Genève

We provide free safe storage for valuables for all participants. Please store your valuables in the starter bag provided and bring it to the valuables safe storage facility. After the race, your race number serves as the collection slip for your valuables. The valuables safe storage facility is signposted.
Please note due to limited space, we can only put B2Run starter bags in the valuables safe storage facility. Sports bags etc. cannot be left at the valuables safe storage facility. No liability is accepted for theft or other damage and 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.
We ask all walkers / Nordic walkers to start from this starting block only. Thank you.
