The Jungfrau Marathon has already started today and continues on Sunday. It is often referred to as the “toughest marathon in the world” and we wish one of our guest bloggers,  Rachel Dale, who is running in aid of Room to Read, all the very best. Participants will be running at altitude through the most stunning scenery.

And if you fancy Swimming here is a website with information (in German) listing swimming pools all over Switzerland. And here is a list of the Badis in Zurich. Don’t forget it really might be the last chance for a swim as many of them start closing down from this Sunday onwards. The water temperature today is around 20 degrees – very inviting! Have a great weekend!
