In 2014, three teams of "NEUROPHILES" comprising of members of the Lemanic Neuroscience program and collegues of the DNF and CNP of UNIL/CHUV started in the "20 km of Lausanne". This year, nearly 20'000 runners were present at the event overall!
This year, we were accompanied by sunshine all over, putting a smile on the face of runners even when being slightly exhausted ;-)
In the 10km race, team NEUROPHILE 3 finished in position 64 and team NEUROPHILE 1 in position 73 (out of 89 teams).
In the 20km race, the team NEUROPHILE 2 finished in position 26 (out of 39).
Congratulations to all runners and thank you for again making the Lemanic Neuroscience program so visible !!!
This year, 2013, we organized for the second time teams to represent the Lemanic Neuroscience program in the 20 Km of Lausanne, a popular race with more than 18'000 runners in all different categories.
We had eight runners for the 10 Km and six for the 20 Km in Lausanne. The race took place on Saturday April 27th under a cold and persistent rain. Some of us improved our times from last year (... one year older, 1 minute faster!!), and many did an excellent race, running faster than they had expected.
The LN team for the 10 Km ended in position 39th out of 86 teams, and we were 18th out of 32 for the 20 Km team.
Congratulations to all runners and thanks for contributing to the visibility of the Lemanic Neuroscience program!!
In 2012 sixteen courageous neuroscientists and LN friends ran with us, leaving the LN teams in a glorious position:
10th out of 31 teams for the 20 Km, and 43rd out of 88 teams for the 10 Km.
According to Nicolas Toni, we ran a total of 240km, which amounts 16’000 calories and the equivalent of 2 kg of body fat. We can thus claim that on that glorious day of April we lost 2kg of Neuroscientists!!
Thanks to all for contributing like this to the visibility of the LN program!
