Starting block change

First time competitors who offer proof of ranking with their entries (Swiss Loppet or Worldloppet) may be allowed to start in a front group. The same rule is valid for competitors who have not participated in the Engadin Skimarathon for the last two years.

The request must be made by filling out the form online after the online registration and after paying the starting fee. The event organizer has sole responsibility for determining the starting order and will confirm the assigned starting block by e-mail. Qualifications of participation in the last two years are valid and cannot be changed.

Holders of a Worldloppet passport intending to start in the starting block Hauptklasse C (main class C) have to inform the Engadin Skimarathon office or mark the corresponding text fiel when registering online.

Members of national/regional teams must enclose proof of their memberships with their entries.

FIS points: Only competitors with valid FIS XC code which they must indicate upon registration will be awarded FIS points.

IMPORTANT:
It may happen that certain starting blocks are fully booked. In this case you will be divided into the next free starting block.

A processing fee of CHF 40.- / € 38.- will be charged for any kind of changes after the start number has been printed. The first allocation of starting numbers will take place at the beginning of January and thereafter on an ongoing basis.
