We’ve divided the Lake Geneva paths in Lausanne into two sections. This route is a beautiful waterfront run from Port d’Ouchy west to Saint-Sulpice. The first section of the ‘Qaui’ (path) loops around the Port d’Ouchy and marina for 2 km, passing the Bellerive Beach, to the Vidy port. The path turns into the Promenade de Vidy, passing the Stade Pierre-de-Coubertin (named after the founder of the modern Olympics). This section is along the lake but also through a long park, ending at the Port Saint-Sulpice, which is adjacent to the University of Lausanne campus. It’s a 9 km out and back, with some options to add in the parks and down some of the port/marina paths.
Longer Run: The waterfront path also heads east to Pully for 3.3 km. If you combine both, the total is 15.5 km.
- 4.5 km one-way, or 9 km (5.5 miles) out and back; Can combine with path to Pully for 15.5 km (9.6 miles)
