Aletsch Half-Marathon

Real-world running experience every day in the Aletsch Arena

For reasons we already know, the traditional Aletsch Half-Marathon could not take place on the weekend of 20–21 June 2020. But now for the good news: The permanently signposted original half-marathon course in the Aletsch Arena is open to EVERYONE as a real-world running experience with timekeeping for more than 90 days from 25 July to 25 October 2020 (not a virtual race).

Classic run in a UNESCO World Heritage Site!

The 21.1 km long challenging run through the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The views of the Great Aletsch Glacier and the four thousand metre peaks of the Valais region are what make the Aletsch Half-Marathon the most beautiful mountain run in Europe, attracting up to 2,500 runners from all over Switzerland and abroad every year.
