When will the next SWISSMAN take place?
The next SWISSMAN will take place on 22 June 2024. Registration closes on November 10, 2023.
How do I register for the SWISSMAN?
Registration opens on 1 November and closes again on November 10. The starting places will be raffled off. Athletes with enough X-Points may qualify directly for a SWISSMAN 2024 entry.
What do I need for the registration?
Everyone can register for the SWISSMAN lottery. You don't need a performance record. But you have to be aware of what's in store for you. The SWISSAN films will help you get an idea.
Can I use walking poles when walking?
No, the use of walking poles is not permitted during the entire run. Not even on the final climb from Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg.
How can I change my supporter?
Shortly before the event, you will receive an email with a link where you can check and change your supporter details.
Can I have more than one supporter?
You can have more than one supporter, but only one support vehicle! The supporter pass to enter the transition area is not personal and can be exchanged between several supporters. Important: You have only registered one supporter. This person is responsible for your support. Also the registered mobile phone has to be available for the SWISSMAN crew during the whole day to get in contact with your supporter crew! This is also the mobile phone you have to carry on the last section from Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg.
Can I support an athlete running with a bike?
Yes, if you decide to accompany your athlete by bike during the run, you can do so between Brienz and Grindelwald. Please note that there are some sections with gravel roads. A mountain bike is therefore more suitable. On the last section from Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg the supporter must accompany the athlete on foot. Between Brienz and Grindelwald it is also permitted to accompany the athlete on foot.
