The 2013 edition of the CERN Road Race took place on 18 September. Despite the poor weather, some 60 people (including 5 children) ran the 5.5. kilometre race on the west side of the Meyrin side (children ran 1.8 kilometres.)

Runners were put in different categories (girls, boys, women, men, and by age group). All took home a souvenir prize, while the quickest left with trophies. 

"There was a great atmosphere despite the rain," says Klaus Hanke, secretary of the CERN Running Club, who organizes the event. "I'd like to thank the volunteers and CERN services that made this event a success."
