Q: Why isn't it possible to be refunded in 2020?
A: According to our regulations § 7, we do not refund any entry fees or transfer them to the following year. By registering to the Gornergrat Zermatt Marathon (payment of the entry fee), you automatically accept our regulations.
But the steering committee decided to transfer your entry fee either to 2021 or even to 2022. We are convinced that our marathon will live long and that we can celebrate our anniversary in 2022.
Q: When does the 19th Gornergrat Zermatt Marathon take place?
A: On July 3, 2021.
Q: What is to be done for the entry fee's transfer?
A: Every registered runner will receive a personal e-mail with a link with which he or she can register via Datasport. Registration must be done until July 4, 2020, 8:30 am. Who has not received the personal mail, contact email@example.com. Who chooses the starting place transfer 2021, will find his name on the start list from 15 August 2020.
Q: I paid for the cancellation insurance in 2020. Does the validity remain after the transfer?
A: No, you have to take out insurance again by registration, as it is no longer valid.
Q: I will not be able to participate next year. Can I transmit my entry fee to someone else?
A: Yes. The voucher is only valid for 2021. If you can't or don't want to participate, you can transfer your starting place via the exchange. The transmission fee is CHF 20.-. The registration transfer will only be done once the CHF 20.- are paid and on the account of the Zermatt Marathon association. The runners decide who pays the transmission fee. The exchange is available on August 15, 2020.
Q: How can I donate my money to the Zermatt Marathon association?
A: By registering normally for the 19th Gornergrat Zermatt Marathon in 2021 and by paying the entry fee. Registration opens on August 15, 2020. We would like to thank every runner for this solidarity.
Q: What shall I do on July 4, 2020?
A: Despite cancellation of this year's marathon, the 4th of July shall become a Zermatt Half Marathon day. Not necessarily in Zermatt, but anywhere you are. You can run the half marathon against your friends and fellow-runners with the viRace app of our partner running.Coach. You will get all information about the race course and the most important trail sections via your head phones. Just like in a real race! You will find further information here.
Q: I chose the partial payment for my starting place. How must I proceed?
A: Select "Starting place 2021 with partial payment" in the drop-down menu before July 4, 2020, 8.30 am. On August 15, 2020, Datasport will send you an e-mail with link with which you can register for 2021.
