We recommend that the participants arrive at the starting area a maximum of 60 to 80 minutes before the start time. There are two heated tents available to get out of the cold. Important: Queuing and waiting in front of the entrance to the start area does not bring any advantages, as the participants will be divided into the different waves after admission to the start area.

At the start area there is a "Last Minute Wax Service" from Toko (spraying and polishing of cold waxes for skating skis, application of grip for classic skis) for a fee of CHF 10.00. Important: This service is intended for emergencies with changing weather conditions and the skis must have been prepared in advance. The service is offered between 6:00 am and 8:30 am. Last ski-in is at 8:20 am. No liability is assumed for changes to, or loss of skiis.

Timing chip

The timing chip is attached to the inside of the starting bib and will be taken at the finish line. If you do not participate in the race, we ask you to return the timing chip - either by mail (in a padded envelope) to the marathon office or during the race at the finish line in Pontresina or S-chanf .
