Running, Walking, Nordic Walking in Berne...

The Federal Parliament building in the back

Ladies only...

Every year the Swiss running event for women takes place in Berne. It exists since 1987 and every year more females participate. Last Sunday 14000 women (from the top athlete to the amateur) were either running, walking or Nordic walking. It is said to be the largest Women's sporting event in Switzerland.

As you can see it is also color- and cheerful celebration! It is not about winning but all about participating and having fun.  In some cases it is also...

Silly joke I know - but funny!

Enjoy your day!

PS. The 27th Women's run will be on June 9, 2013.
