Courses and Categories

SWISS INTERNATIONAL MOUNTAIN MARATHON is a two-day orienteering race in the mountains. All participants start in a team of two, no matter if male, female or mixed. There will be an overall standing, the handicap is calculated by age and gender of the participants. Beyond the given checkpoints, every team chooses it's own way by map and compass. Furthermore, safety equipment (first aid), food supplies and equipment for the overnight stay are mandatory and will be strictly checked. The complete equipment must be carried in a backpack by the participants themselves during the entire event.

Orienteering Marathon

Orienteering-Marathon is the most challenging category in both, navigational skills and endurance. Most of the way will be offside the paths, advanced or professional athletes and orienteers will love it.
Trail Marathon

Theses categories are simplier in terms of endurance and orienteering skills. A possible track is already marked on the map, only a few checkpoints are given. The way follows mostly the alpine hiking paths and other leading lines. This category enables athletes with high motivation of running/hiking but poor orienteering technics to participate at R'ADYS MOUNTAIN MARATHON. The short distance is also appropriate for walkers and nordic walkers.
Score Marathon

The score marathon is first induced experimentally this year. Before the kickoff, each team gets a list of possible checkpoints with their individual scores depending on their level of difficulty. The goal is to gain as much scores as possible in a certain amount of time. Excess of time means a loss of points.

Categories for the parcours 1 / 3 / 5 / 7 / 9

For each course, a total ranking list will be created. In a special column the categories are named: Ladies (D), Men (M), Couples (C) and Families (F).

In the Family category, teams consist of up to 5 team members.  At least one team member must be 16 years old or younger (for the year 2019: born in 2003 or later).  Ideally all team members should be related, but this is not compulsory.


Route data

The route data corresponds to the effective distance and slope on an assumed ideal route.

So far: distance = as the crow flies.
