Best Universities in Europe for Management
After having been tantalized with the promise of an early spring, it was quite a shock to experience what seemed to be a combination of every season in a single day in April. However, the weather now seems to be brightening up and as we head in to May, EU business school students can look forward to enjoying a number of sports in the sun. Here are our top picks that you should watch out for this May.
This year marks the 10th anniversary for the UNICEF Geneva Marathon, and the second year that European University Geneva students will participate as volunteers. The weekend-long event also welcomes half-marathon runners and relay runners, and hosts a special woman’s race and even a handicycle wheelchair race.
Last year the race saw a record number of participants, and this year aims to attract an even larger crowd. Course records include a five year standing time of 2h 14m 23s for the men and a women’s record set by Keneni Chawlla at 2h 43m 52s – with more participants expected than ever, you might see a new record.
Kentucky Derby, U.S.A., May 3rd
The famous American past-time, appropriately nicknamed “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports”, is back and celebrating 140 years. This year the stakes are particularly high with new changes to the rules and regulations and a field of the best jockeys and horses all vying for the title as they race around the 1.25 mile track.
Since it started over a century ago, the Kentucky Derby has captivated millions: what began as a small race with roughly 10, 000 spectators has grown to welcome over 150, 000 attendees each year. Those not particularly interested in the race itself can admire the showy headpieces adorned by the women attending, or sip on a Mint Julep and pretend to be on the Louisville track.
FA Cup Final, England, May 17th
Yet another football event in May that is well placed to tide football fans over until the beginning of the world cup in June.
