LEAVE YOUR CAR AT HOME. COME BY TRAIN, IT’S FREE
For all those who have registered for the Half Marathon, the RelayRun or the 10 km run, travel in Switzerland by train is FREE! Runners coming from Italy only have to buy a ticket as far as Chiasso.
StraLugano highly recommends the use of public transport, but if you’re obliged to use your car:
From the South (Italy): take the Chiasso-Basilea A2 motorway (NB: mandatory toll sticker on your windscreen); exit n° 49 Lugano Nord, at the roundabout take the second exit to Gandria Lugano, after the Tunnel, at the roundabout, head towards Lugano and follow the “P Stralugano” signs.
Anybody wanting to take the Chiasso-Lugano Canton Road, on entering Lugano will find the “P Stralugano” signs or directions for arriving at the Municipal Stadium, which will take you to the Stadium car park.
From the North: take the A2 motorway towards Chiasso exit n° 49 Lugano Nord; at the roundabout take the third exit to Gandria Lugano, after the Tunnel, at the roundabout, head towards Lugano and follow the “P Stralugano” signs.
You can also leave your car at Chiasso, where a Park&Ride facility will be available to take you to Lugano by train, free of charge (return trip).
