Gs­taad’s first Glacier 3000 marathon, Switzer­land

Friday - - Travel -

This is one of the most re­mark­able rac­ing land­scapes, tak­ing run­ners from asphalt and for­est trails to alpine ice and snow. And to cel­e­brate a decade of the Glacier 3000 run – a 26km odyssey from Gs­taad to the Glacier 3000 sum­mit – this year will see the launch of a new chal­lenge for long-dis­tance run­ners: The first Glacier 3000 marathon on Au­gust 5. The epic chal­lenge tra­verses moun­tain trails and passes streams, a dam and the lakeshore be­fore a gru­elling climb to Alp See­berg, at 1,712 me­tres above sea level. Reg­is­tra­tion dead­line is July 24.

Race fees start at Dh418pp in­clud­ing cloth­ing, trans­port to the fin­ish line, trans­porta­tion on the Glacier 3000 moun­tain rail­ways, shut­tle bus to Gs­taad and food and drink coupon. To reg­is­ter visit glacier3000.run.ch
