One wek to Go !

Following the announcement of measures to require a quarantine of at least 7 days for athletes residing in the United Kingdom (and in our case also South Africa, Canada and Brazil), to combat the spread of the new virus variant, around fifty high-level athletes had to give up participating in ATLETICAGENEVE. Despite this, one week before the meeting, the field remains qualitatively impressive and by the middle of next week we will be able to publish the long awaited start lists. At ONE WEEK to the event, we are ready for a great edition. All we want is that athletes find a well organised event where they can compete with a strong international field in order to get their best of. Their performance will be our sole satisfaction. Nothing more, nothing else. Ths is why we organise ATLETICAGENEVE. We are

8 countries drastically affected by travel restrictions in Switzerland

VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE We have received confirmation that athletes travelling from the following countries : United Kingdom (from May 27), Brazil,  South Africa,  Canada,  India,  Nepal ARE NOT BE ALLOWED TO ENTER SWITZERLAND or must comply with a quarantine period of at least 7 days !! In other words, athletes from these countries must submit to a quarantine of 10 days, reducible to 7 days in case of a negative covid test. EXCEPTIONS Athlete from those indicated countries but not coming from there, are possibly allowed to enter Switzerland IF, at least one week before the event can prove that have been in another country (not on the list). We suppose this would normally count as a equivalent of quarantine of the minimum required 7 days (if a negative covid test can be provided). We hope some of you are

2 Weeks to Go !

2 weeks only and the 33rd edition of ATLETICAGENEVE will welcome an excellent line-up. With each edition, the meeting has progressed steadily, guaranteeing us sustainability. Yes, we are still here with this reputation of which we are so proud, organically built, with our means, our know-how and our great passion. It’s an Olympic year! We have loyal athletes for whom this year may be their last international year. We have seen these athletes evolve over the years and it is for them an additional motivation to try to participate for the 2nd or even the 3rd time in the Olympic Games. The Geneva track is also magical, not to say fetish, because it allowed so many qualifications to these athletes. And so, this year, and despite the very real difficulties linked to the pandemic, many will be the athletes who

Volunteers: wanted ! Join the group !

Organising an event of this magnitude requires preparatory work throughout the year. The organizing committee is entirely voluntary. The organisational structure is based on the association explicitly created for this event and can rely on the competent work of members of the “Centre Athlétique de Genève”, partner and historic club. But the size of the meeting requires reinforcements for many tasks. They all have in common the fact that they can meet and rub shoulders with high-level athletes from all over the world. The experience is always very rewarding and when you see “this athlete” on the track and knowing that I had something to do with it too, it is very gratifying. And the athletes are very thankful to you. Who is responsible for driving the minibuses to transport the athletes from the hotel, who monitors access to the

Good news on the Covid restrictions front in Switzerland

“Coronavirus: Fourth round of lifting restrictions from Monday goes further than originally planned” As announced today, 26 May by the Swiss Federal Council, relaxations will come into force in a few days. From June 1, among other important news, as far as we are directly concerned, it is again possible to eat and drink in the seated places in public events if the contact details of all participants have been listed. In addition, it will again be possible to eat indoors at the restaurant. The rules are as follows: respect for distances or separations, 4 people maximum per table, registration of the contact details of all customers and obligation to consume seated. But it is above all to note the increase in the number of spectators authorized to attend the meeting: we go from a limitation to 100 to 300

We care about young talents

ATLETICAGENEVE’s objective is to allow young athletes of 16 and 17 years old (U18) to participate in the international meeting, is a very important source of motivation.The organisers are convinced that this experience represents a milestone for all these young people. Competing in the middle of a meeting just a few minutes from the confirmed stars, with a race dedicated to them and which attracts the attention of the entire public, gives them the spark. We are convinced that this spark can be the engine of a whole career (read more about our declared intents). It is a privilege reserved for young Geneva talents. Most, if not the majority, of established athletes all have a spark shining somewhere from their youth. To further mark this stage, the organisers have decided to offer all 32 U18-participants (8 girls and 8 boys

ATLETICAGENEVE invited to the debate on LémanBleu TV

May 16, 2021 ATLETICAGENEVE presents the various aspects of the organization linked to Covid, on the Léman Bleu TV program Walter Zecca, president, underlined the new logistical constraints and also the difficulties with which the meeting is confronted, linked directly or indirectly to the pandemic. An increase in certain significant costs (accommodation, transport), new costs (masks, gel, protection plan), increase in the athletic level of athletes (only professionals are admitted) and inherent costs, which must also face the ‘impossible equation linked to a decrease in sponsors. However, the pandemic has also reduced certain costs (giant screen VIP area), but this is not enough to balance the budget, especially since certain expenses are, so to speak, imposed (prize-money, anti-doping controls, reminder station. false start) by the regulations of the European Association (European Athletics) according to the category to which ATLETICAGENEVE belongs
