The Basel Dragons Running Club

Our club meets every Monday and Thursday evening at 18.30 at Landskronstrasse 26, close to Voltaplatz, where we use the changing rooms of Hayabusa's. We also organise weekly Saturday morning runs (approx. 20km) in the Basel area, meeting points vary.

The club caters for all levels - from people who have never run before, to people who used to run and want to get back in shape, to advanced runners who regularly compete in races. On weekdays we have five groups running at different pace. The team leaders’ aim is to motivate club members and give the runners plenty of advice and encouragement.

In recompense for our efforts, we are always happy to have a drink or food together after running @ Mel's Diner, close to our changing rooms. We organize many social events from Thursday's Dinner to various other sports and social activities.

Our group formed in April 2009 and has been growing fast ever since. We have around 100 members through out the year, and on a normal running day, 20-40 people meet.
