Aletsch Half Marathon
Started in 1986, Aletsch is one of the older trail races in Switzerland, and takes places in the dramatic Jungfrau Aletsch-Bietschhorn UNESCO work heritage site. The route climbs over a thousand meters, with views of several 4,000 meter peaks, and the stunning Aletsch glacier below the course. A selection of shorter races has been added on the Saturday before the main event, so why not make a weekend of it? Check out Thom Fresnau’s Run the Alps Blog post on the Aletsch Half Marathon. This race is part of the Valaisan Cup.
