I have been enchanted by this unique sporting event since 1993 and will always be deeply moved by the majestic natural setting of Engadin. There are so many variables and every competitive race is a singular experience. The marathon is also a metaphor for life itself. Long live the Engadin Skimarathon!

To me, the Engadin Skimarathon is a perfect race in one of the most beautiful regions of Europe. It is a huge festival for cross-country skiing fans from all over the world. Everyone enjoys the comfortable atmosphere and the excellent, fast pace on compact snow, the Engadin sun, the tail wind and then the after-marathon-party. The four times I have personally participated remain in my best memories. I can only say to every cross-country skiing enthusiast that the “Engadiner” has to be personally experienced.

Anyone who has completed the “Engadiner” once cannot stop. The person will be infected by a virus that will also follow through the summer, and the most beautiful and biggest folk-cross-country skiing marathon will remain on his or her agenda. Happiness prevails!

The “Engadiner” is considerably more than a local event with national significance. To me, it’s symbolic of how a collection of over 10,000 individuals are able to come together through one goal: to successfully overcome 42 kilometers. That is how or world should work, meaning that people should strive with much perseverance and fair, sporting spirit towards the same goal.
