Coming to Geneva - looking for runners, footballers, basketballers and of course housing

Hey everyone,


I will move to Geneva for an internship at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies at the end of August. Although I am already very much looking forward to my time in Geneva, I would be even more excited if I knew about the following ;)


Can you recommend any runners clubs/athletics associations? I am looking for a group that runs sub 40 on the 10k. Maybe also some trail runners - though I never really did this before.


Are there any groups that casually play football or basketball? My skills are terrible but I love playing both.


And of course, as almost everyone, I am looking for a room for up to 1000 CHF. I would love to live in a shared flat as I really don't like coming home to a dark and empty apartment after work. Rather, I would like to have someone to chat, discuss, share a drink or play board games with. I am very tidy, clean and calm. Non-smoker.


Cheers,


Jonathan

Hello, Jonathon, and welcome to glocals and Geneva.


There’s a mine of information available on this site as you will find if you click the “Groups” and “Classifieds” tabs. You’ll soon have somewhere to live and plenty of friends.


All the best,


Ritchie

That sounds good. I will definitely follow up on that once I have settled everything

Hello Jonathan, 


My partner (Dariush) and I are in almost the exact same boat. I start an Internship at IOM next week and he is joining me in Geneva as soon as we find a flat. We are both keen runners and he LOVES football, we also like a boardgame evening. I don't know how you've got on looking for an apartment, we are actualy planning on looking on the French side (Ferney-Voltaire). If you find a football club or even a regular kick-about, Dariush would be very interested!


Good luck,


Lily

Welcome to glocals, Geneva  and neighbouring France!


For accommodation you won’t do better than checking the Classifieds where you’ll find plenty of offers as well as the opportunity to place an ad. of your own.


Then check the “Groups” for activities galore plus “Things to do” for the latest “what’s on” events.


You’ll be spoiled for choice.


All the best, R.
