Event descriptionThe SIMM (Swiss International Mountain Marathon) is a daughter of the former KARRIMOR INTERNATIONAL MOUNTAIN MARATHON (The OMM nowadays) and 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: FOR SPORTS FRIENDS WITH BRAINS. The route via the prescribed checkpoints can be freely chosen and can only be managed with the help of the national map 1:25,000 and a compass as well as your own food and safety equipment. A minimum of material for overnight stays at the destination of the first stage in the terrain, for food and first aid is required and must be carried in the backpack for the entire distance. Orienteering, score and trail The three main courses are called Orienteering Marathon, Score and Trail Marathon. The Parcour Orienteering Marathon is for those who know how to use the map. There is a long and a short distance: Orienteering Marathon Strong and Orienteering Marathon Light. The runners in the score course also know the map well. You spend as much as 5 hours a day on the road and stop at as many posts as possible, thereby collecting points. The ranking is created based on the points achieved. The majority of the two trail marathon distances lead along hiking trails. Basic knowledge of map reading is sufficient here. Here too there is a long and a short distance: Trail Marathon Strong and Trail Marathon Short. There are the categories Men (M), Women (W), Couples (C) and Family (F).
