10th Glacier 3000 run & marathon - jubilee
The attractive race course begins at the Gstaad Promenade at approx. 1050 meters and ends up at Glacier 3000, situated almost 3000 meters above sea level. This is an altitude gain of about 2000 meters. The Glacier 3000 race will be a true challenge for all participants. The first part of the race is mostly run on even ground. Thereafter, the course gets steeper as the terrain goes from a soft forest trail to alpine hiking trails and finishes up by going over snow and finally over the glacial ice. A participation in the course is possible in the categories Single, 2-Team or Alpine Nordic Walking.
The marathon begins at the Gstaad Promenade, which lies 1'050 meters above sea level. Participants will begin on the regular stretch until Feutersoey and then turn off onto a steadily climbing mountain trail towards Arnensee. After about 3 km on the added loop of the marathon is a beautiful mountain trail alongside of the raging Tschärzis stream. Close to Restaurant «Huus at Arnensee», after a climb of about 450 meters, there will be a refreshment station wth time measurement. Afterwards the course crosses over the dam and continues along the northwest side of the lakeshore. At the end of the lake runners have another tough climb up to Alp Seeberg at 1'712 meters above sea level. From there the course continues over alpine meadows covered in flowers and passes through the lush green forests back down to Feutersoey – partly down some very steep paths. Afterwards the course continues on the regular stretch and at the end crosses over the eternal ice of the Tsanfleuron Glacier and onto Glacier 3000.
