Start

Engadin Skimarathon/Half Marathon

The participants in the starting blocks Elite, Elite A (gross time) and Elite B start from the starting field. The start for the participants of the following starting blocks takes place from the starting boxes. Participants first walk to waiting boxes next to the starting field. From there they are led in groups to the starting field to put on their skis and start independently. In the start boxes, the depositing, wearing or laying-on-the-ground of skis is not allowed.

Important: From Elite B, split times are measured by chip activation at the starting line (net time measurement). Elite and Elite A ladies start five minutes before the rest of the starting field.

Participants first walk to waiting boxes next to the starting field. From there they are led in groups to the starting field to put on their skis and start independently. In the start boxes, the depositing, wearing or laying-on-the-ground of skis is not allowed.

Engadin Night Race

The start takes place for all from the starting field (gross time measurement). The participants line up in accordance with their category.

Starting block

Engadin Skimarathon/Half Marathon, Engadin Women's Race

The start takes place in the assigned starting block, the qualification for which results from the participation in the Engadin Skimarathon / Half Marathon or Engadin Women's Race in the past two years. Qualification for a starting block remains for all participants for two years. If a qualification from the Engadin Skimarathon is available, this is relevant and performance certificates of other cross-country races can not be considered for the classification in this case. First-time participants can arrange themselves in the starting blocks Main Class A to General Class. First-time entrants who provide a certificate of performance can also be divided into the starting blocks Elite to Elite C (with the start block change form). The number of people per starting block is limited. Should a starting block be full at the time of registration, the next free starting block will be allocated.

Engadin Night Race

The starting block can be chosen freely. For the starting block Elite a proof of achievement must be submitted.

Race distance

Engadin Skimarathon / Half Marathon

Participants who have registered for the 42 km can finish the race in Pontresina after 21 km and will be listed in the Half Marathon ranking. Participants registered for the 21km race must finish the race at Pontresina, otherwise they will not be ranked for either 21km or 42km.

Climbs / descents

The whole route must be covered on skis. It is prohibited, especially in ascents, to take off your skis. This limitation also applies to the climb at the Olympic hill in St. Moritz. Participants who take off their skis will be disqualified. Exempted from this rule is the Stazerwald descent, whereby only the specially marked footpath may be used.

Ski equipment / change

The skis and poles used must comply with the regulations of the FIS. Ski changes during the race are prohibited. In case of defects on skis or bindings, a maximum of one ski may be replaced.

Responsibilities of the competitors

Competitors have to cover the whole distance on their skis using only their own means of propulsion. Help from pace setters or pushing is not allowed (IWO Art. 343.7).
