UNESCO World Heritage Trophy

The Aletsch Half-Marathon and the Jungfrau Marathon are among the most popular mountain running events in Europe. Both lead through the stunning natural landscape of the UNESCO Swiss Alps Jungfrau Aletsch World Heritage Site. You can experience both of these running classics as part of the UNESCO World Heritage Trophy.


For CHF 310.00 (excl. fees) you can register for the UNESCO World Heritage Trophy.

The following races are fixed in the Trophy:

  • Aletsch Half Marathon (AHM) on 23 June 2024
  • Jungfrau-Marathon (JM) on 7 September 2024

In addition, you can register for two further races:

  • Jungfrau-Lauberhorn Run 4.48 km and 1028 metres climb on 7 April 2024
  • Aletsch Sprint 2.7 km on 22 June 2024

Participants of the UNESCO World Heritage Trophy will also receive free admission to the World Nature Forum in Naters.


If you have completed at least one run in addition to the Aletsch Half Marathon and the Jungfrau-Marathon, you will take part in the final ranking.  

Your finishing time per run will be divided by the winning time of your category. This value (quotient) will be used for the final ranking. For each participant in the UNESCO World Heritage Trophy, the values of the Jungfrau-Marathon, the Aletsch Half Marathon and the better of the additional runs will be added to the final ranking.  

The participant with the lowest value wins the Trophy. This gives participants from all age categories a genuine chance of taking the overall win.  

The winner of the 2024 UNESCO World Heritage Trophy gets a Weekend for 2 in Aletsch Arena or the Jungfrau Region.
