55th Engadin Skimarathon

On the second Sunday morning of March, the starting pistol for the Engadin Skimarathon will be fired in Maloja in the Upper Engadin. The Engadin Skimarathon will take place on 9th March 2025.

Every year, Switzerland's largest sports event attracts around 14'000 cross-country fans from over 60 nations to the Upper Engadin valley.
On the 42 km long marathon route to S-chanf, the skiers move over frozen lakes, past typical Engadin villages and through a unique winter landscape.
