«Engadin Skimarathon - individual»
«Engadin Skimarathon - individual» - 4th - 6th March 2024
This time you don't compete against the over 14,000 other participants, but against yourself. The fixed time measurement on the original marathon route from Maloja to S-chanf is accessible to all cross-country skiing enthusiasts and Engadin Skimarathon fans, but requires registration. Are you ready for the somewhat different adventure «Engadin Skimarathon - individual»?
Registration for the «Engadin Skimarathon – individual» will be possible again in spring or early summer 2023.
Transportation of personal effects
Say goodbye to freezing your bum off! Your warm clothes travel comfortably with the effects transport and await you at the finish in S-chanf. Pure luxury. There are two personal effects transports available per day.
Catering along the racecourse
At the halfway point, i.e. in Pontresina, there will be a refreshment post. Because the second 21 km are much easier to handle with a boost in the stomach and bloodstream.
Marathon Chalet with food and drinks in the finish area
Hell yes, your stomach will be rumbling after 42 km. How appropriate when the Marathon Chalet is waiting for you with delicious food. Enjoy fine grilled dishes and some good old pasta. And of course, refreshing and thirst-quenching drinks are also waiting for you there.
The catering at the finish is open from 10.30 am to 4:00 pm.
How reassuring to know that you will get home safely. At the finish line, shuttle buses are ready to take participants to the train station in S-chanf. The shuttles run regularly between 10.30 am and 3 pm.
Line 7 of the Engadin Bus also serves the finish area in S-chanf during these days. Please note the times in the special timetable.
With the «Gnusspäckli» you benefit from practical additional services. Our favourite can be booked with the registration. So you can book your plate of pasta, a dessert and a drink conveniently when you register.

As soon as the participant crosses the starting line, time measurement is activated. For 30 minutes, the starting line can then be crossed as many times as you wish – only the last triggered time is valid. This means that there is enough time for photos etc.
Should the participant forfeit the race, it can’t be restarted (time measurement will not be triggered). It is possible to participate several times at "Engadin Skimarathon - individual", but it requires a new registration each time.
