About the event

The Jungfrau-Marathon is an extraordinary event featuring 42.195 km with a 1'953 metres altitude difference and 4'000 entries that sell out every year. Runners and spectators will be amazed by the stunning landscape throughout the course, with magnificent views of the iconic Alpine trio of peaks, Mönch, Eiger, and Jungfrau. Starting in Interlaken and passing by Lake Brienz, traditional mountain villages, and a breathtaking mountain backdrop, the journey ends in the same place it began. Adding to the excitement are the flag throwers, alphorn players, and bell ringers who liven up the atmosphere. The Jungfrau-Marathon is truly an awe-inspiring experience.

Breathtaking. One couldn't help smiling from start to finish. Of course it did help that it was sunny and warm (2017 it was grey, raining and almost zero degrees Celcius at the top). May a bit too warm to run but hey ... most of the race after the 25K mark is just a hiking trip up the mountain. Be prepared that that is just the way it is for most average runners ;-) Switzerland isn't the cheapest location to visit and stay but this bucket list marathon is a must do. Very well organised. Relaxed atmospfere. Not so much to be influenced by the organisers: - Train ride down the mountain back to Interlaken took about 2 hours incl. waiting time on the platform (that already took 30 - 45 minutes and can take longer) - Take your own food with you or via your supporters up the mountain unless you want to spend EUR 30 and up per person for a quick lunch
