Destination, race area and the maps
The race area is between 1000 m and 3000 m altitude in alpine terrain. The teams will each receive one special version of the Swiss Topo map at the scale of 1:25,000, contour distance 20m. If you want an extra map, you can order this in advance (with your entries) at the cost of CHF 20.- per map. They will be given to you at the event, either at Registration or at the Start, depending on which category you have entered. Other maps may also be used by the competitors.
This year, the SIMM will take place at Schwarzsee, in the canton of Fribourg. The exact location of the Event Centre will be revealed later on. The Event Centre will be open form 6 pm till 8 pm on the Friday and from 8 am to 9.30 am on the Saturday. All further necessary information will be given to Team Members at this point. We recommend that you arrive Friday evening or early on the Saturday morning. If you are arriving on Friday, please book your accommodation as soon as possible. You can do this through the Tourist Office or directly with your chosen hotel.

When you reserve a hotel, please mention that you are coming for the SIMM as certain hotels will offer a discount for competitors. We will keep you updated of the offers as we get them.
Where will the next races take place?
We try to move the race around the Swiss Alps, to introduce you to new areas and to keep the terrain interesting for the runners. We alternate the competition between Western Switzerland, Central Switzerland and the Valais. If you are keen to have the race in your local area, or if you know of areas that may be interested in hosting our race, please get in touch!
Before the location of the race can be announced, we have to obtain the necessary permissions from the local landowners, and this is why we sometimes announce the location a little later than we would have liked.
