The Engadin Skimarathon is a member and stage run of the Worldloppet, Swiss Loppet and Russialoppet competitions.
The Worldloppet Ski Association, also known as «Worldloppet», is an international sports association for cross-country marathon races. It was founded in 1978 in Uppsala, Sweden. The purpose of the association is to promote cross-country skiing through various races around the world and increase interest in it. Only one race from each country can become a member of Worldloppet. Usually this is the best race in the country. Currently, 16 different runs from Europe, Asia, America and Australia are full members of Worldloppet. Since summer 2014, four associate members have also joined. They have no voting rights at the annual meeting of all member races - Annual General Meeting AGM.
The Worldloppet Pass is a personal document in which every race is entered and verified with the official stamp of the race office. After ten different races, at least one outside of Europe, have been successfully completed, the pass holder receives the status of a Worldloppet Masters (WL Master). The current race calendar lists all races that are recognized for the Worldloppet Gold or Silver Master.
