Like every fall, new neuroscience students are trying to find their marks within the laboratories, while the elders are back to their daily routines, eager to advance science.

However, with October comes also the start of the Escalade Run training season. As Juvènal would say: “Mens sana in corpore sano”, we would like to encourage you to sign up and join the Huber Lab for the weekly training sessions each Tuesdays at 12:15 and each Thursdays at 17:45 to get in shape for the 7.3 km across Geneva’s old town.

This year we will register among the UNIGE group and share the same colors during the race. This option allows us to take part in any race category we want and encourage each other while we are enjoying a post-race beer.

UNIGE Registration site:

For the occasional runners I would suggest to sign up in the mixed category (Mix 3) on Saturday afternoon (December 1st). This way most of us can run the 3 rounds together.

Registration deadline is on November the 7th, once this is done, let me know so that I can grab your t-shirt and stamp it with an additional Neuroscience running logo (if you want).

Training location in the “Bout du monde” stadium :

Please let me know if you have any questions.
