Engadin Marathon Week cancelled

The Engadin Skimarathon 2020 will not take place. Due to the spread of the coronavirus, the health authorities of the canton of Grisons have imposed a ban on holding large-scale events with supraregional import in the Southern Grisons until 8 March.

As a consequence, the Engadin Skimarathon, the Engadin Women's Race, the Engadin Night Race, and the St. Moritz Supersprint will not take place this year. The Engadin Skimarathon is the world's second-largest cross-country skiing event.

The biggest cross-country skiing festival of the Alps, the Engadin Marathon Week 2020, will not be held. On Thursday, in an effort to contain the spread of the coronavirus, the health ministry of the canton of Grisons has decreed the cancellation of all public events in Southern Grisons. On Wednesday, two cases in the Upper Engadine valley were confirmed to have tested positive for the coronavirus.

– We very much regret having to cancel the Engadin Marathon Week after all, but the health of our participants, our volunteers, and the general population comes first, explained Menduri Kasper, CEO of Engadin Skimarathon.

The cancellation impacts close to 17,000 participants of the five competitions of the Engadin Marathon Week. The organiser will inform the participants on the administrative steps following the imposed cancellation by the end of March.

The Engadin Skimarathon is the world's second-largest cross-country skiing event. It has only been cancelled twice since it began in 1969.

The Engadin Women's Race, which was due to be held this coming Sunday, is the second-largest cross-country skiing event in Switzerland.
