Detailed information on B2Run Zürich
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.
Changing room/shower facilities
We offer you a limited number of changing room and shower facilities on event site. These are located in the sports hall on the lower floor. 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".
Deadline for registration
The deadline for registration for the B2Run Zürich will be announced in January 2024. Until then, the team captain can register participants and make changes to bookings online.
The team captain can register last-minute participants in the webshop up to tbd for an additional fee of CHF 5. Changes to registrations can also be made in your MyB2Run account up until that time. After that, final late registrations and changes can be made directly on site at the info desk. Please note that for late registrations, no name will appear on your bib.

After Run Dinner
After the race, you will have the opportunity to recharge your batteries at the After Run Dinner. Participation is only possible with a voucher, which can be purchased in advance via the shop or at the information desk on the day of the event.
The concept has been updated for 2023:
Instead of the traditional pasta party, we will now offer 2-3 different dishes. The range varies from region to region and offers something suitable for every participant.
We do not accept seat reservations. Likewise, reservation of seats on the day of the event itself is not permitted.
However, when you book a team stand in our online shop, you can order the desired number of banquet sets (at least 4) exclusively for your company.
All B2Run Zürich 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:
|Starting block||Who is this starting block suitable for?|
|<25 mins||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.|
|25-30 mins||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.|
|30-35 mins||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.|
|>35 mins||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.|
|Walking||You are registered in the "Walking" category, or you will walk the distance instead of running it.|
At the race in Zurich there are also different start times to help ensure a smooth flow of runners. When you book your Starter Package, you can choose your start time(s). Start times are not based on how fast you can run. You can choose a time regardless of your level of fitness. Please note that there are a fixed number of race entries available for each start time. The starting times in Zurich:
- Starting time 1 (runner): 6.30 p.m.
- Starting time 2 (runner & walker): 7 p.m.
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 be automatically allocated the latest start time.
As B2Run calculates your actual running time (see "Timekeeping"), the winner could be in any start block. However: Fast runners (average speed over the whole race of less than 3:45 mins/kilometre for men and 4:30 mins/kilometre for women) who don't have a race entry in the first starting block but would really like to be in the first starting block can change their starting block on the day of the race at the info desk.
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.
Please check the time table on the main event site.
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.
Please note that at the B2Run Zürich, participants in the "Walking" category will automatically be allocated the latest start time (7 p.m.).
