Mattmark Memorial 1965

semi marathon

11. September 2021

In September 2021 the third Mattmark semi marathon takes place. The start is next to the round chirch in Saas-Balen and leads among larch trees to Saas-Grund and Saas-Almagell towards the the hamlet "Zermeiggern". On the historical path you'll get to the dam Mattmark where the most beautiful part awaits you: the last 7 km around the beautiful lake Mattmark.

For those who prefer to take it a little easer it is also possible to only do the lake tour around lake Mattmark or participate at the Nordic Walking / Fun categorie.The kids race will be along the dam.

Retrospective Program 2020


21.1 km, 810 m ascent, 90 m descent

The half marathon starts at the round church in Saas-Balen, then leads through magnificent larch forests past Saas-Grund and Almagell to the hamlet of Zermeiggern. On historical paths you reach the dam wall in a pleasant ascent. Finally, the most beautiful part for the runners follows, the 7-kilometre practically flat circuit around the pictorial Mattmark!
