Anyone else doing 20th edition this year?
Weatherwise, it is looking good for Saturday.
There is likely to be some early mist in the Lauterbrunnen valley which will clear to leave full sun later. Meteo Suisse are predicting a maximum temperature of 14°C at Kleine Scheidegg, and a max of 22° in the valley at Lauterbrunnen.
If this changes significantly I will post another message
Thanks Einepyk, sounds ideal and hoping Sunday is similar.
Just found this thread after not being on the forum for a while. Looking forward to the race now despite not doing enough hill training. Thinking it will be a half mara followed by a long scenic walk. Group of 8 + supporters of us from Soton area going out to do the run (5 Sat, 3 Sun). Fly out Wed so get to see what the weather is like then.
Any idea why the Google & IPhone weather forecasts for Lauterbrunnen are so far off the mark. Interlaken shows a realistic 17c but Lauterbrunnen 0c & light snow which I cant believe.
There was a sprinkling of snow above Wixi on Friday but there is barely a trace of it now.
I'm running on Saturday - I'll be somewhere near the back! I'll look out for your vest Lisa!
Sorry that I didn't see you on Saturday, Lisa, but I'm seriously impressed by your time! Well done!
Well, I finished - which was my only aim - so I am happy. (It is 30 years since I last ran a marathon).
I passed through the gate at Wixi seconds before it closed!
Did see you on the Saturday Lisa. Was supporting at the 21km point just out of Lauterbrunnen. Even got a photo but you appear to be texting at the time.
Really enjoyed the race but that was one tough run! Knowing how to pace the various sections and where to walk was key. Thought the organisation, drinks stations etc were spot on.

At 40 I think it will only get harder now!!
At 60, I'm hoping that it can't get any harder! I probably will do it again, partly because the race is on my doorstep and partly in the hope of doing better next time. Like Owen, I was very impressed by the organisation and the many helpers.
I absolutely loved this Marathon and will definitely be going back next year!
I finished in 4hrs 36mins.
