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


Florian Koch

Head of Recreational Sports and Training Swiss Athletics It was a sensational experience to take part in the Aletsch Half-Marathon. Wonderful weather and an incredible feeling running towards the finish line with so many spectators watching. I particularly liked the circuit around Riederfurka and, of course, the first glimpse of the glacier.
