Gommerlauf [ski]

Has anyone ever done the Gommerlauf? I have signed up for the half-marathon skate…. now due to lack of snow this winter and therefore lack of practice, I'm panicking . Any info on what it is like would be awesome!

Re: Gommerlauf [ski]

I did it last year - half-distance (21) but classic. It's pretty flat and of course the landscape is great. Hope the snow is at least ok this year and I'll do it again!

If I were you I'd train mainly the arms - as I said it's pretty flat so it's really a question of pushing the whole way.

Best of luck!
Emile

Re: Gommerlauf [ski]

Hope you have great fun.

Here is a list of other xcountry races in Switzerland this season, and detail of the one near us at Les Cernets on 15th of Feb and the Marathon des Neiges on 22nd Feb.

Le programme de ce dimanche 15 février 2015 est: Horaire Catégorie Année de naissance Distance Prix 10h00 Filles jusqu’à 20 ans 1995 et plus jeune 14km libre 20CHF/16€ 10h00 Dames 1994 et plus âgées 14km libre 20CHF/16€ 10h00 Garçons jusqu’à 20 ans 1995 et plus jeune 14km libre 20CHF/16€ 10h00 Messieurs 1994 et plus âgés 14km libre 20CHF/16€ 10h00 Dames 1994 et plus âgés 28km libre 30CHF/24€ 10h00 Messieurs 1994 et plus âgés 28km libre 30CHF/24€ 10h05 Randonnée populaire 1 Libre 8 km libre 10CHF/8€ 1 La randonnée populaire n'est pas chronométrée

Le calendrier des courses 2015 est le suivant :
Date Distance Nom Lieu 4 janvier 21 km F Attraverso Campra 11 janvier 25 km F Planoiras Volkslanglauf Lenzerheide 18 janvier 22.5km F Rothenthurmer Volksskilauf Rothenthurm 25 janvier 23 km F Surselva-Marathon Sedrun 1 février 21 km F Kandersteger Volksskilauf Kandersteg 8 février 25 km F Einsiedler Skimarathon Einsiedeln 15 février 34 km F Marathon des Neiges Franco-Suisse Les Cernets / Verrières 22 février 42 km F Gommerlauf Obergoms 1 mars 42 km C Mara Les Rasses sur Ste-Croix 8 mars 42 km F Engadin Skimarathon Maloja – S-chanf

I am so sorry- just hate it when you copy and paste a link that look great, and it jumbles it all up when you copy. Apologies for that.

Happy to help with info on possible accomodation for either of Les Cernets races.
