How can I change my supporter?
Please send an email to with the details of your new supporter: name, address, email and most important! number of the supporter mobile phone.

Can I have more than one supporter?
You can have more than one supporter, but only one support car! The Supporter badge to enter the transition zones is not personal and can be switched between several supporters. Important is: You have registered only one supporter. This person is responsible for your support.  Also the registered mobile phone must be available for the SWISSMAN crew during the whole day to get in contact with your support crew! This is also the phone you need to carry with you on the last part from Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg.

Can I support my athlete from the bike during the run?
Yes. If you decide to accompany your athlete by bike during the run, you are allowed to do this between Brienz and Grindelwald. Please be aware that there are several parts with gravel road. A mountainbike is therefore more suitable. On the last part from Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg your supporter must accompany you on foot. It is also allowed to support the athlete on foot already between Brienz and Grindelwald.

Can I use walkingsticks during the run?
No. It’s not allowed to use walkingsticks during the entire leg. Also not on the final climb from Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg.
