Half marathons in Switzerland: An overview of Half-marathons in Switzerland.

The dates for all Half marathon events in Switzerland, including registration, course, schedule, results and more details.

Switzerland hosts over 50 half marathon events per year. Besides some big city half marathons, many of the competitions take place on or around mountains. Half marathons along lakes are also popular.

With its 21.097 km course length, the half marathon is a popular destination for many runners. In contrast to the 42.195 km marathon, the half marathon can be completed by almost any amateur runner with only a few months of training. It is then quite logical that there are now significantly more half marathons in Switzerland than marathons. In addition, almost every marathon runner completes one or the other race over the half marathon distance in his preparation.

Which half marathons are there in Switzerland?

On the very first day of the year there is the possibility to complete a half marathon at the New Year's Marathon in Zurich.

In the cities there are also some great half marathons. At the beginning of spring, around 7,000 people are active in sports at the Auffahrtslauf in St. Gallen. This is not only due to the long tradition of the run, but also to the varied route, which leads along the Grübensee lake to the city center of St. Gallen and finally ends with a finish in the soccer stadium. Also unique in the spring is the Dreiländerlauf Basel, which crosses three national borders - an absolutely unique event. In addition, the half marathon runners get to cross the Rhine no less than four times.

Internationally known: Half marathons along lakes and up mountains

The Greifenseelauf and the Switzerland Marathon light are also scenically impressive and by now well known to almost every runner in Switzerland. More than 10,000 runners now take part in the Greifenseelauf in Uster (Zurich). Among them are also many top runners. The course leads along the picturesque Greifensee.

The Switzerland Marathon light, which starts in Sarnen (Obwalden) and impresses with its Alpine scenery, has established itself as the fastest half marathon in Switzerland.

Less fast, however, are the Inferno Half Marathon and the Aletsch Half Marathon. However, it is not about the fastest possible times there, after all, these runs lead up a mountain. And so the Inferno Half Marathon requires an additional 2,000 meters of elevation gain, while the Aletsch Half Marathon requires a little over 1,000 meters of elevation gain. Both have established themselves as one of the most beautiful mountain runs in Europe.

The autumn is also marked by the half marathon competitions at the big city marathons. For example, the SwissCityMarathon Lucerne and the Lausanne Marathon also have large fields of participants over the 21.1 km.
