Countdown bis zum Marathon

General information

Closing time

Closing time is 12.15pm for Halfmarathon and 3.00 pm for Marathon and 10k. Runners who do not cross the finish line within the time limit will not be classified. Marathon runners who pass the turning point after 12.00 am have to end the race. The end of the official competition is determined by the broom wagon which is on the move in such a way that he arrives the finish line with the set time limit. Runners who are overtaken by the broom wagon, have to hand over the timing chip to the correspondent staff and are no longer part of the official competition.

Timing

Chips are used for time measurement. All runners of the SwissCityMarathon will receive a coded chip along with their race number by way of lending which has to be returned after completing the race. It is prohibited to use own chips. The race number must be visibly worn and unfolded on the front. The participant will be charged a CHF 50.00 fine if the chip is not returned.
