Known for its breathtaking scenic views and the mountainous high cliffs of the Swiss Alps, Switzerland has no shortage of organized marathons. The cleanest air lets runners get their lungs full making their way around the countryside and major city centers.
Scenery that is something out of this world, runners try their hand at half marathons such as the Aletsch Glacier, which takes runners to new highs, literally 2650 meters above sea level.
Or push themselves beyond the limits with ultra marathons such as the Gielersee Ultra-Marathon. Most marathons are conducted for fund raising, so runner’s have a cause that drives them forward. From spring to fall you can find marathon enthusiasts training and running for their personal best all across the nation. With so many amazing things to see and do, is a Switzerland Marathon in your future?

The marathon is actually running the same half-marathon twice. I was a bit afraid of the hills that this course is known for. Several people had been telling me about them, but in the end they were no worse than the ones that I run in on my normal Sunday runs and as they are pretty much in the beginning of the course (and before the 28 kilometer mark on the second passing), so you can really preserve your energy to ensure you conquer them, before that final (pretty flat) last 14 kilometers.
