Come and join us this year and enjoy an unforgettable training day in the amazing mountainous surrounds of Zermatt. Together with our main sponsor, the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway, we are organising a training run on this year refurbished Gornergrat Zermatt Marathon course on Sunday 4th June 2017. Under the keen expert supervision Martin Schmid, race director, will supervise the training run along the actual Zermatt Zermatt Marathon course. Dietmar Walter and Andrea Schneider, the Gornergrat Zermatt Marathon Co-ordinator will also run to the Riffelberg in separate groups at a more leisurely pace.
