Walking, jogging, running company in Lausanne
May 23, 2010

Hi KBS participants,

Would any-one be interested in joining together to go for a run/walk during the conference in Lausanne?

I imagine a walk/run along the lake in the morning would make for a pretty spectacular backdrop and memorable addition to the conference!

Any-one interested in walking, jogging or running could email me and we could maybe get some loose arrangements before we arrive. clairew@turningpoint.org.au and remember to pack walking/running shoes if you are interested.


Organizers Comments

The most convenient place for jogging along the lake is "Ouchy" (terminus of the Metro). Please contact Claire to fix an appointment there.
