The start of the half marathon takes place at 11.00 a.m.
The quarter-marathon about 10.5 km starts at 11.15 p.m.

Time mesurement
Datasport is responsible for the mesurement of time. On the back of the race number, a chip for timing is fixed. This guarantees the highest reliability and precision. No more explanations are required  - simply attach the number clearly visible on your clothes and off you go.
Important: the chip must be given back after the finish at the specially marked location. If the chip is not returned, CHF 50.00 will be billed.

Finish closure
The end of official timing at the Nordic Centre will be at 14.30 p.m. . Participants who arrive later than that, will not be classified.

Medical service
The medical service is ensured by the Samaritans Goms. Six aid stations are located throughout the race course and at the finish.

Feeding stations
A total of six feeding stations with drinks, Sponser energy bars and bananas are available on the track.

Showers / toilets / changing rooms
The infrastructure of the Nordic Center with toilet, dressing room and showers is available for free. More showers and toilets will be installed in front of the Nordic Centre and at the start / finish area.

Insurance
Insurance is the responsibility of each participant. The Obergoms Tourismus AG as the organizer declines any liability for accidents, theft or damages of any kind and appeals to the personal responsibility of each individual. Leaving the marked trail is forbidden for sporting and safety reasons and results in disqualification. With the registration, the runner confirms to have the necessary insurance cover as well as the necessary training preparations.
Anyone registered unable to start, is not entitled to a refund of the entry fee. We therefore recommend the online registration with cancellation insurance.

Pictures
Participants agree that during the event film footage and photos can be taken without compensation claim.

How to get there
On the race day, registered runners ride upon presentation of the written confirmation and the personal identity card for free on the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn to Ulrichen and back (2nd class without Glacier Express). This service is not available for late entries.
The footway from Ulrichen train station to the Nordic Centre will be signaled and takes about 10 minutes. Those arriving by car, follow the signs from Ulrichen. Please note that the parking space is limited at the Nordic Centre.
