For sports fans with brains

The SIMM (Swiss International Mountain Marathon) is THE unique outdoor event for orienteers, mountain, running, endurance and adventure athletes, trail runners, walkers and hikers, in a team of two, as a couple or with the family, in short: for smart sports fans!
The way of the prescribed control points is freely selectable and only with the help of map and compass as well as the own food and safety equipment to cope. 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.
There are 3 courses of different lengths for experts in using the map:
1 Strong Orienteering Marathon
3 Orienteering Marathon Light
5 Score Marathon
The two courses
7 Trail-Marathon Strong and
9 Trail-Marathon Light
Most of them lead along the hiking trails. Basic knowledge of map reading is sufficient.


Leaderboards - Route gadget - Photos

The SIMM 2021 is history. We can look back on a wonderful weekend with many satisfied participants and a church that supported us very well. A big thank you goes to ours SponsorsThe Ranking lists on our website or on the side of Swiss orienteering are online (here afor technical reasons without a course 5 score).

The SIMM is on to find. Maps and routes from orienteering races are collected on this ingenious website, enabling exciting route analyzes. The runners can enter the route they ran during the competition themselves. The routes drawn can be compared with one another and displayed as an animation. We look forward to as many teams as possible drawing their routes. You don't even need a login and it's very easy to use. The more routes that are drawn in, the more exciting the route analysis becomes to find out who went through where. If you had a sports watch with GPS recording with you at the competition, you can download the track from the watch and click on it Upload.

This route analysis is certainly also interesting if you
- Did not run this year, but want to know where the competition took place
- You have previously participated in the SIMM and want to motivate yourself for next year
- have never participated in the SIMM, but want to know what to expect.

Numerous photos are on our website or on FacebookThe images with the SIMM logo and watermark can also be used for your own Internet posts. Thank you for your "Like" and especially the sharing of our posts results in a good dissemination and advertising effect for our run.

The next SIMM takes place on 13./14. August 2022 in Surcuolm Obersaxen GR. Anyone who would like to help us distribute and hang up with the advertising with flyers is welcome at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots To display JavaScript must be turned on! Order flyers.

2 cards per team with track imprint, sample card

In the last newsletter we announced new features in the map area. Thanks to the fact that the map data has been freely available from swisstopo since March 1st, we are for the first time in a position to create our own maps including the track imprint. Each team receives two cards at no additional cost. The tickets will be handed in at the mass start on Saturday. There are two new cards on Sunday.

This means that the item sheets become obsolete and you no longer have to draw the items yourself. In the ranks of the OK, too, we mourn this peculiarity of the SIMM a little, not least because the drawing in was always a welcome subject for our photographer. But it will be exhausting enough, don't worry. So you only know after the start which running area you are going to.

This is why the item on the website is called "Process> Post sheets" new "Process> sample card». There you will find a sample card based on the original “3 Orienteering Marathon Light” course from last year. We wish you a lot of fun with the preparation and look forward to further registrations. 80 teams have already registered.

Guard crew wanted for radio posts

For the 46. Swiss International Mountain Marathon 2021 - Morgins CH on 14./15. August 2021, we are looking for mountain sports enthusiasts who do not want to actively experience the competition themselves but want to experience the competition as a radio station crew. The task is to check possibly closer posts, to carry out passage control of the teams and to be able to intervene / coordinate in the case of an emergency. After the last team passage, a few more posts may be drafted on the way home.
A great mountain experience is guaranteed - pleasant weather has been ordered and usually arrives in mid-August! The picture is from the last SIMM in St. Antönien.
