Emergence

The idea and implementation of the signposted route for the Winterthur Marathon came about during the corona pandemic. The running route enables anyone interested to complete a half marathon. The route can be run alone or with a companion and is of course available not only to runners but also to walkers and hikers. Driving down by bike is not possible on the signposted route due to various driving bans. See also driving bans on the online map.

 

Signposting

Directional arrows are only placed at branches. You can always walk along the route as long as there is no directional arrow indicating that you are leaving the route. The direction arrows were mostly attached to existing hiking trail signs.
