AISTS represents at the Lausanne Marathon

AISTS’ class of 2020 was out in force at the Lausanne Marathon, with 14 participants from this year’s Sports Management Master’s Program taking part in distances including the 10k run, 10k walk, and the 21k run.

The Lausanne Marathon is one of the biggest events in Lausanne’s sporting calendar and attracts thousands of runners (and walkers), alongside thousands of fans who cheer from the sidelines.

A big well done to Emilio Valdes Legaspi, who ran AISTS’ fastest time at an incredible 38.25. Athlete scholarship winner – and Olympic racewalker – Marc Mundell even set the record for the fastest ever 10k walk with a time of just 48.27.
