Excellent results for CERN runners

As in previous years, thirty or so runners from CERN took part in the Tour du Canton de Genève (more information here, in French only).


The men’s team that won the corporate challenge prize in the Tour du Canton de Genève: (standing, left to right) Patrick Villeton, Phil Hebda, Mika Vesterinen, Steffen Doebert; (sitting, left to right) Guillaume Michet and Camille Ruiz-Llamas.

The Laboratory was represented in the corporate challenge by five teams, one of which came first in the men’s category. CERN’s other teams also put in good performances, with one finishing fourth in the men's category and another seventh in the mixed category. Runners from CERN did well in the individual classifications too. All the results can be found here.

Elsewhere, four CERN runners competed in the finals of the Annecy Maxi Race (site in French only). The results of the race are available here.

The competitors met up with the rest of the CERN Running Club for a barbecue on the Meyrin site to celebrate this successful end to the season.
