Follow the race

We can understand that as a spectator standing alongside the route, you might feel you don’t really know how the whole race is progressing. After all, the half-marathon is a 21.1-km route through the pristine nature of the Aletsch Arena. But the organisers of the most beautiful mountain run in Europe have thought of a solution. If you want to know how the race is going, you can!

Race information at the finish line

Spectators following the Aletsch Half-Marathon at the finish line on the Bettmerhorn not only benefit from watching the runners actually crossing the finish line, they can also listen to a running commentary on the progress of the race all through the event.  

Live tracking with the Datasport app

Spectators can receive even more precise information through real-time data via DS Live. The Datasport app delivers start, split and finish times as well as the latest results in real time to your mobile phone, tablet or computer. This means you can follow all the action in the Aletsch Half-Marathon without interruption, and not just from alongside the route. The tracking service even allows you to follow the race virtually live, from your own home



President of Swiss Athletics

An event with 2,700 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!
