We are delighted to report that both Jeremy and Grace completed the marathon successfully. Well done to both of them, it is no mean feat. Here are two pics, the first at the start and the second at the finish. They are holding the old T shirt with Myles’ photo on it.
What would the Jungfrau Marathon be without the Jungfrau? You, the Jungfrau and the world famous panorama have made this event a marathon of superlatives – a cult race and the alpine equivalent of the London event. You are running with a complete view of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau finishing no ordinary marathon but a unique runners experience . Along the way the scenery keeps changing: The emerald Lake of Brienz contrasts with the icy mountain giants of the region, the sheer rock faces in the Lauterbrunnen Valley with the bubbling waters of the Lütschine and the gnarled stone pines below the Wengernalp with the eternal ice of the majestic Silberhorn. The race starts in Interlaken and finishes way up, below the famous mountains, just above Kleine Scheidegg. In addition to Lauterbrunnen, the course goes up through Wengen on its way.
