Discover the countryside and make some new friends
If you fancy a stroll in the countryside, and don’t mind crowds, then you might like to join in the Geneva SlowUp Festival, which is taking place this year on Sunday, August 8th.  More than 25,000 people are expected to cover the 29 km course, which will cover many of the picturesque villages near to Geneva.
There are very few rules – there are no age limits and you can join the course wherever you like, for as long as you like.  The emphasis is on a relaxed atmosphere with families and friends all joining in and making new acquaintances on the way. You can use any means of transportation, provided it is not motorized – so if you don’t want to go on foot, you can take your bike, skateboard, rollerblades, soapbox cart or even horse!.
The start is planned for 10am on Quai Gustave-Ador, with a return scheduled for about 4pm.  The course is relatively easy and provides a wonderful opportunity to see some of Geneva’s most beautiful surrounding villages, Click here for a link to the route map: http://www.fetes-de-geneve.ch/pdf/2010/Plan-slowUp.pdf
A wide variety of tempting refreshments will also be provided along the course.  Visit the website for further details: http://www.fetes-de-geneve.ch/?rubrique=0000000132
