Behind the ad-hoc committe of organizers there is a small group of friends who have been involved in the event from the start and who have in the course of time changed from participant to organizer. This «hard core» of idealists deals with all the work accumulating during the year. They are helped in the week of the event by another five to six people.
At the weekend of the event (Friday to Sunday) another 30 helpers from all over Switzerland join the organizers. For many years largely the same people have helped us; many of them have actively participated in the race.
All the work is done on an honorary and unsalaried basis. The only present the helpers get is usually a sweater, a social gathering with a common meal and the certainty of having been able to experience an unforgettable, beautiful weekend involving a lot of work, but together with many lovers of sport right in the middle of the spectacular Swiss Alps.
