Rules and Regulations Jungfrau Marathon
In these Rules and Regulations the masculine form is used to designate both male and female genders.
M/F 20, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70
If fewer than five runners are classified in one category, we will cancel this category and classify the runners in the preceding age-group category.
Entry terms & conditions
Eligible to enter are all runners born in 1995 or earlier. The event complies with the regulations of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS), the World Mountain Running Association (WMRA) and Swiss Athletics. The official marathon course must be followed and instructions by course officials must be adhered to. Only runners who have signed the athletes' declaration on the start card without reservation and/or deletions/amendments are eligible to start. If possible, participants will be informed of organisational measures before the start of the event. The organizer's instructions must be followed completely. In the event of non-compliance, the organizers may at all times exclude any runner who is disturbing the normal course of the event or endangering the safety of other participants.
These entry terms & conditions, valid at the time of entry registration, form an integral part of the contract between organizer and participant. Amendments announced by the organizer before the start, on Internet at www.jungfrau-marathon.ch or in written form, are supplements that form an integral part of the contract.
This Alpine challenge is only suitable for highly-trained runners. It is dangerous to run the race shortly after an infectious illness (e.g. angina, flu) or even with a temperature. We appeal to the common sense and own responsibility of every participant (the Jungfrau Marathon takes place every year).
Doctors on duty along the route sections are authorized to retire a runner from the race on medical grounds. Should a competitor continue the race against a medical directive or run behind the official last control vehicle (sweeper's bike), he does so at his own responsibility and without any entitlement whatsoever to marathon services.
The current «Regulations on Doping» issued by Swiss Olympic are applicable at the time of this competition. Random doping tests may be carried out at any time during the Jungfrau Marathon. The athletes accept the Swiss Olympic regulations on doping and acknowledge the exclusive expertise of Swiss Olympic Disciplinary Chamber and the arbitral judgement of the CAS (Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne – Switzerland) in any case of doping.

Every runner will receive a personally coded data chip with his start number. Use of a private data chip is not permitted. The start number must be clearly visible at all times, fixed either on the chest or a race number belt and may not be modified or folded. Infringement may lead to disqualification.
The transfer of an acquired starting place must be notified to the secretary. An administration charge of CHF 20.00 each will be levied for all transfers made from 1 July. Transfers after 20 August can only be made at the Help Desk at the Marathon Expo. The administration charge of CHF 20.00 must be paid at the Help Desk on issue of the start number.
Escort vehicles and sports equipment
Private escort vehicles (motor-driven or otherwise) or suchlike are not permitted.
The use of aids and sport equipment (especially Nordic walking poles) is also prohibited.
Fairness at the Jungfrau Marathon! Disqualification will be declared for providing false personal details (name, age) unsporting behaviour (e.g. not passing through check and time-monitoring points, taking short cuts, escorts, pacemaker, use of aids, ignoring official instructions, drug use). It is also forbidden to pass a personal start number to another person without complying with the official transfer procedure.
Any disqualification will be the final decision of the jury (race management and person in charge of finishing area). Objections must be made in writing and handed to the person in charge of the finishing area by 30 minutes after the official closing of the finish. An administration charge of CHF 50 will be payable on the spot. This will be refunded should the objection be upheld.
Checkpoint closing times
The last control vehicle (sweeper's bike) marks the end of the race. After this has passed by, the section will be re-opened for other users. Runners overtaken by the sweeper's bike are classified as being outside the race and continue at their own responsibility and without any entitlement whatsoever to marathon services.
Runners who arrive after checkpoint closing times will not be classified and may no longer make use of marathon services (refreshments, first aid, checkpoints, timing, ranking lists, medals, etc.).
The marathon course will be closed after the following checkpoint closing times:
• Wengen Railway station (30.3 km), 4 hrs10 min. after the start has taken place
• Wengernalp, Wixi branch off (37.9 km), 5 hrs 35 min. after the start has taken place
Runners who drop out of the race must notify the next first-aid post and hand in their chip in return for a receipt. Runners will be charged for missing chips (CHF 50). The costs of searching for a person who has not given notification of dropping out will be charged to the individual concerned. The start number is valid for travel to Kleine Scheidegg, where personal effects and valuables must be collected.
The start number is also valid for the return journey to Interlaken on race day.
Insurance is the sole responsibility of the participant. Every athlete must be insured against accident. The Jungfrau Marathon Association bears no liability whatsoever in the event of accident, evacuation, hospitalization or illness. There is no entitlement to repayment of the start fee should a registered participant fail to appear at the start or to inform the organizers in advance of non-participation – not even with the presentation of a doctor's certificate. (Conclusion of starting fee cancellation insurance is bookable with online registration.)
The organizer accepts no liability whatsoever for any loss or damage during transport.
Following the return of the time-measurement chip at Kleine Scheidegg, each finisher will immediately receive a finisher t-shirt and medal. Finisher diplomas will be printed out on the race day at special terminals in Interlaken (Marathon-Expo). Participants can also print out their diplomas via Internet. No diplomas will be sent.
