The Allalin Races are the highest glacier races in the world and thus, a one-of-a-kind experience. Due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, the 39th Allalin race in March 2021 is still not confirmed. The OC will closely monitor the course of the situation in the coming months and will decide and inform in time about the realization. If the race is held, the OC will present and implement an appropriate protection concept.
We thank you for your understanding.
The first Allalin races took place in 1946. At that time, nine young skiers started from the summit of the 4027-meter-high mountain Allalin and plunged down into the 2227-meter lower located Saas-Fee. Only five skiers mastered the unprepared track to the finish. Today, the start is in the ski area and the track for the race is well prepared.
The nine kilometres long run overcomes 1800m of altitude and participants reach around 140km/h.
