Gstaad’s first Glacier 3000 marathon, Switzerland
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
