Description

Engadin Ski Marathon was the first marathon of this kind. It was organized in 1969 with an amazing 945 of skiers who lined up at the start line. Since then its success has grown to now include more than 12, 000 participants. It’s a 42km long marathon which leads beside a medieval castle, beside ice-bound lakes, and through an entire forest. The whole landscape it’s absolutely astonishing. If 42km sounds daunting, you can sign up for the half-marathon. It's incredibly well organized evidenced by the fact that competitors’ warm clothes get transported to the finish line. The Engadin Ski Marathon is a real challenge, but also a chance to admire the wonders of nature in the Swiss mountains.
