This year’s memorable relay race


Runners on the start line of the race

More than 1000 runners, competing in 167 teams, took part in the CERN relay race on 30 May – a record level of participation for a highly memorable event! The race times ranged from 12 minutes and 15 seconds (the fourth best performance ever for the current route) to more than 23 minutes.

The Nordic walking race attracted 26 participants. And the children from the Jardin des Particules joined in the fun!

The CERN Alumni Network also took part in the event for the fourth year in a row by organising a virtual relay race, in which 14 teams of alumni from a total of 26 countries competed.

The photos and the results of the relay race (worth consulting for the team names alone!) are now online on the Running club’s website.

The CERN relay race is organised every year by the CERN Running club and the Staff Association. A big thank you to all the participants and volunteers, who make this race such a success.
