Swiss International Mountain Marathon


What is the SIMM?

The SIMM ...

The SIMM (Swiss International Mountain Marathon) is the unique outdoor event for orienteers, trail runners, mountain, running, endurance and adventure athletes, walkers and hikers, in a team of two, as a couple or even with the family, in short:


The way of the prescribed control points is freely selectable and only with the help of the National National Map 1: 25'000 and compass as well as the own food and safety equipment to deal with.

A minimum of material for the overnight stay at the finish of the first stage in the area, for food and first aid is required and must be carried in the backpack over the entire distance.

Orienteering, Score and Trail

The 3 main courses are called Orienteering Marathon, Score and Trail Marathon.

The course Orienteering Marathon is for connoisseurs in handling the card. There is a long and short distance: Orienteering Marathon Strong and Orienteering Marathon Light.

Also the runners in the ScoreCategory know the card well. They spend as many 5 hours per day as possible, collecting as many items as possible and earning points. The ranking is based on the achieved points.

The two Trail Marathon-Distances lead mostly along the trails. Here basic knowledge in card reading is sufficient. Again, there is a long and a short distance: Trail Marathon Strong and Trail Marathon Short.

Family, ladies, mixed and men are the subcategories (separate ranking).
