The Gornergrat - Zermatt Marathon is one of the finest running events in the Alps. Start in St. Niklaus (1,116 m), finish in Zermatt on Riffelberg (2,585 m) – with the option of racing all the way to the top of the Gornergrat (3,089 m).
The course covers 42.195 km and conquers 1’469 metres altitude. One compensation for the gruelling run is the breathtaking panorama.
The marathon welcomes not only runners, but also spectators who can enjoy this event within an unforgettable setting. The „Terraces on the move“ will be an attractive and original event: an excursion train of the „Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn“ Company going from St. Niklaus to Zermatt in the same way as the Marathon. Departure of the „Terraces on the move“ from St. Niklaus: 8.50 am
At 8.15 pm a free concert with Roberto Brigante & Band takes place on the station square.
