The SIMM (Swiss International Mountain Marathon) is THE race for orienteer's, runners, outdoor lovers, adventurers, walkers and hikers, in teams of two, with a friend or our family. In short, it’s for thinking mountain-loving sportspeople!
The route between the controls is entirely up to you, with the help of your compass and map. As well as your food and compulsory safety material, you also need to carry for the whole distance all your equipment for the overnight camp at the end of the first day.
For competent map readers, there are three different courses on the Orienteering Marathon. The two Trail Marathon categories (long and short) are technically easier as they will end to follow footpaths, so you only need a more basic understanding of map reading.
