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).

Included in the runners package, which costs CHF 25.00 per registration:

  • Official start number with timing chip.
  • Free travel by cable car from the finish on Bettmerhorn back to Bettmeralp on presentation of your start number.
  • After successfully finishing the course, you can download your personal certificate.
  • Signposting for the entire route.
  • By taking part, you are automatically entered in the prize draw for two weekends with half board at a hotel on Bettmeralp for two persons (summer 2021).

Cost: CHF 25 per registration

What else is there to consider?

  • Runners are responsible for their own insurance. The organiser rejects any liability.
  • For safety reasons and in the spirit of fairness, participants are not allowed to deviate from the original signposted route.
  • There are no refreshment or first aid stations on the route. Please bring anything you need with you.
  • Hikers have priority.
