HISTORY

First race: 16th March 1969, 42 km, 945 entries, 805 ranked

Highest number of participants in main race: 13527 entries in 1998

Worldloppet membership: founding member from 1978

The initiator and “spiritual father” of the Engadin Skimarathon was sporting goods dealer and former skier Albert Scheuing of St. Moritz. On the Sunday after the Vasaloppet 1968 a few cross country skiing enthusiasts from St. Moritz and Pontresina met by chance on the track in the Staz forest. Two of them were excited about the Vasaloppet in which they had participated. Everyone was convinced that there was a great potential in this relatively new sport and that a similar race, of course smaller, should be possible in the Engadin. The idea of the Engadin Skimarathon was born and the nine Upper Engadin ski clubs joined to organise - of course after having overcome a few obstacles - the first race came one year later.

 

COURSE

The specific characteristics of our race are its size (second biggest in the world), the highest above sea level (1800 m), the landscape in a wide valley topped by high snow mountains, 35 % of the race course leading over frozen lakes etc.
