Mattmark Half Marathon
On 10 September 2022, the Mattmark Half Marathon will take place for the 4th time. The start will be at the round church in Saas-Balen. The route then leads through beautiful larch forests past Saas-Grund and Almagell to the hamlet of Zermeiggern. On historic paths you then reach the dam wall in a pleasantly manageable climb. Finally, the most beautiful part follows for the runners, the 7-kilometre practically flat loop around the picturesque Mattmarksee!
For those who prefer a more leisurely pace, there is also the 8km route around the Mattmark dam or the Nordic Walking/Fun category.
