President of Swiss Athletics

An event with 2,500 runners speaks for itself. The Aletsch Half-Marathon has long been THE mountain half-marathon in Switzerland beyond any comparison. On behalf of Swiss Athletics, I congratulate you on reaching this milestone anniversary and am convinced that the Aletsch Half-Marathon success story will continue. Such exceptional events are very important for the running scene in Switzerland and consequently for Swiss Athletics too! Many thanks for your dedication. It is quite clear that the organisers have put their heart and soul into making a success of this unique run. Keep up the good work!
