The beauty of the marathon is only surpassed by its popularity and its excellent reputation. Participant numbers are limited to protect the environment, and places sell out in record time. The start line in Interlaken is easily accessible by train. From here, the course leads runners via its highest point at 2,095 m to the finishing line on the Kleine Scheidegg. A special challenge sets the “Wall of Wengen” where runners need to conquer a steep climb with a difference in altitude of 500 m. In total, the participants face an ascent of 1,829 m in altitude and a descent of 305 m. The list of winners holds famous names, such as Tesfaye Eticha and Marco Kaminski.
