The Engadin Ski Marathon has been held on the second Sunday in March every year since 1969. Indeed, this event is as popular as ever before. That is hardly surprising, for both the 42 km long stretch from Maloja to S-chanf and the half-marathon route from Maloja to Pontresina pass through some of the most spectacular, snow-laden landscape in the Engadin.

The legendary Engadin Ski Marathon, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, is a hugely popular open cross-country ski race held over the classic marathon distance of 42 km (26 miles) from Maloja to S-chanf.

The anniversary year, with an intensified and concentrated program, as well as already good snow conditions down to low altitudes at the beginning of winter, have contributed to the positive development of the registration process.



The Engadin Women’s Race and Engadin Night Race are also on a record course

The starting positions for the other two races in the framework of the Engadin Marathon Week 2018 are also in great demand:

The 19th Engadin Women’s Race on Sunday, March 4th, currently has 17% more registrations over the same time last year, making a new participant record possible there as well. For the second Engadin Night Race on Thursday, March 8th, there are almost three times as many registrations at the current time as at the 2017 premiere.

The 38th Engadin Night Sprint will also provide a unique atmosphere. On the evening of Friday, March 9th, the Marathon Village in the spa park of St. Moritz-Bad will again be hosting world-class athletes and young talent from Grisons as they sprint for fame, honour and prize money.
