Zurich Netball runs the SOLA

On May 4th, a bunch of our dedicated netballers put on their running shoes once more and joined 892 other teams for the annual Zurich SOLA run. It was our second time running the SOLA, and we can all be proud of these runners for beating last year’s time by 38 minutes with a total of  10:58:20 hours, bettering their overall place by 62 teams!


Nine of our members and a four of their friends got together to run 116.6km in legs of between 4.1 and 14.1km. A big well done to our club members, Barbara (who had to start at 7.30am), Sophie (with the longest leg of 14.1km), our club president Jo Cackett (showing us how it’s done by battling up the Üetliberg), Jen H, Ann-Marie, Lilia, Lara, Lucy and Christine, as well as to their brave friends and family, Roger, Matthias, Matthew, Caitlin’s Dad and Uli. The sun eventually came out in the evening to shine over a well-deserved pizza and pasta dinner.

A great achievement by all our runners. We’re proud of you, and thanks for doing such a great job at representing our club!
