The offer is valid for pupils up to the final year of secondary school.

Material for the race day
Generally, all students are responsible for having cross-country skiing equipment available on the race day. If required, Swiss-Ski provides cross-country skiing equipment free of charge (by appointment only).
Provided material can be picked up in the week before the Engadin Skimarathon. It is recommended to pick up the material for the whole class. The equipment is distributed according to the principle «first come, first serve». Please contact Balz Helfenstein, the material manager of Swiss JULALA, directly when booking, to reserve the material and discuss the handover.
The material must be returned in the week after the Engadin Skimarathon. Again, it is recommended to organize the return of the material for the whole class at the same time. The skis are not specially prepared by Engadin Skimarathon for the run. Material that is not returned will be charged.
Classes have a total of four lessons of cross-country lessons (either four individual lessons or two individual lessons and two lessons with Swiss-Ski *). The teacher is responsible for organizing the lessons and rental material in the area of their own school. The Engadin Skimarathon covers the costs of 2 x 2 lessons of 50 minutes each for the students participating in the Engadin Skimarathon. The teachers themselves decide when these lessons should take place, organize the lessons, and are responsible for sending the bill for the cross-country ski school directly to the Engadin Skimarathon.
*The cross-country lessons with Swiss-Ski take place on Friday and Saturday before the Engadin Skimarathon. If possible, instruction is given by Swiss-Ski or club athletes, otherwise by cross-country instructors. For this lesson the teacher can record requested dates on the registration form.
