Mattmark Memorial 1965 semi marathon

10. September 2022

In September 2022 the fourth 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.
