Tel. +41(0)24 492 09 23

With the registration for the Glacier 3000 Run (payment of race fees), participants automatically agree to the following regulations:

In these regulations the masculine form is used to designate both male and female genders.

Runner Eligibility
Eligible for the race are runners born in 2001 or earlier. The participant ensures that the personal data used for the registration is correct and that the race number will not be transferred to anyone else.
This alpine challenge is only for very well trained runners. Each participant is fully responsible for his/her own health condition. It can be life threatening to participate in the race, shortly after having an infectious sickness like angina or the flue. The same applies to the use of painkillers or similar medications before the race.
Doctors assigned to the course are authorized to pull a runner out of the race on medical grounds. If the race is continued despite the doctor’s advice or after the official control vehicle (sweeper bike/sweeper runner) has passed the runner, a runner does so at his own responsibility and without any entitlement whatsoever to any services of the event organizer.

Race Number and Transfers
Every runner will receive a personally coded data chip together with his race number. Use of a private data chip is not permitted. The race number must be clearly visible during the race at all times, fixed either on the chest or to a race number belt and it may not be modified or folded. Infringement may lead to disqualification. The data chip must be returned in the finish area. Runners will be charged CHF 50.00 by the event organizer for non-returned data chips.
The organizers will not refund any race fees. Neither can any finish places be transferred to the following year.
The event organizer must be notified in case an existing finish place is transferred to someone else. A CHF 20.00 administrative fee will be charged for all transfers made on or after July 1, 2017.
It is also possible to get cancellation insurance while registering for the race online at For more information see
Should the race be cancelled or only partially run due to safety reasons, the participant is not entitled to a refund of the entry fee nor is the fee transferrable to the following year. The race committee is entitled to make the decision to cancel or break off the race.

Each runner must have good equipment suited to weather conditions during the race. The last part of the course is run in an alpine landscape.

Each participant is responsible for his/her insurance. The organizer does not assume any responsibility. By taking part in the Glacier 3000 Run, you agree that the organizer is not liable for any kind of damage (accident, evacuation, hospital stay, illness, loss or transport). Furthermore, neither the sponsors nor partners of the Glacier 3000 Run OC are liable for any loss or injury of any kind.

Escorts / Aids
Any form of accompanying runners on the course (e.g. with a mountain bike or walking alongside a runner) is not permitted. The use of any kind of aids (e.g. poles, spiked shoes) is not allowed. Both will lead to disqualification.

Alpine Nordic Walking
Jogging instead of walking, as well as the use of any technical aids (except for the normal walking sticks), is not allowed. Infringement can lead to disqualification.

The Glacier 3000 Run OC supports the basic idea that Nordic Walking is a healthy adventure sport. Therefore there will be neither a ranking list nor ranking announcement for this category.

A finish list (with times) in alphabetical order will be made.

Checkpoint Closing Times
The last control vehicle (sweeper bike / sweeper runner) marks the end of the race. After this control vehicle has passed, the stretch will be reopened to other users. Runners overtaken by the sweeper’s bike/runner are no longer part of the race.

Reusch: 12.15 h
Cabane: 14.15 h
Finish at Glacier 3000: 15.15 h

Disqualification / Dropping Out
The jury (race organizers and medical team) decides about any disqualifications. Possible reasons for disqualification are incorrect information about the runner (name, age), giving your race number to someone else, unprofessional conduct (e.g. not running through a time station, taking shortcuts, running without a valid race number, using any kind of aids, disregarding official instruction and doping).

Objections must be written and handed to the person in charge of the finish area within 30 minutes of crossing the finish line. Anyone who drops out during the race must notify the next first aid station and return the data chip there. Runners will be charged a CHF 50.00 fee for non-returned data chips. The costs for searching a runner who has not provided proper notification for dropping out will be charged to the runner involved. The race number entitles runners to free transportation to the finish area to pick up personal belongings and then to return to the finish area (Glacier 3000 mountain railways / Shuttle Bus).

Changing Areas and Showers
Changing areas and showers are located in the finish area by the ice rink in Gstaad. Only a changing area is available in finish area at Glacier 3000.

Personal items and clothing (baggage) will be transported to the finish line. The baggage (max. 5 kg/person) must be deposited by 9.45 h the latest (8.15 h for marathon runners) using special bags available at race number pick-up at the ice rink premises.
