This original marathon course is the perfect training ground for getting fit for the big fun run, which is held every year on the second weekend in March. The 42 km are easily manageable on this course across the frozen lakes which is almost entirely level and flat. The track begins in Maloja, crosses the Engadin's frozen lakes (Sils, Silvaplana and Champfèr) and continues into the Forest of Staz to Pontresina. From there the track follows the valley floor and passes the airfield before continuing on to Bever and S-chanf.

Questions and answers

Question from Bruno Heinzer · February 03, 2020 · Community
Wenn der Autor die Marathon Strecke als schwer (280m Abstieg) bezeichnet, wie beurteilt er denn zum Beispiel die Gletscherrunde Morteratsch oder die Trainingsloipe Pontresina?

Lieber Bruno, danke für den Hinweis. Da der Schwierigkeitsgrad automatisch aus der Kondition und der Technik berechnet wird, können wir den nicht manuell eingeben. Wir haben jetzt die Kondition runtergesetzt, damit der Schwierigkeitsgrad "mittel" resultiert.
