The organization of the Swiss Skate Tour has just announced the schedule of the 2017 edition of the Swiss Cup of Skating Marathons. The events alternate between urban and rural courses. Age and distance categories are planned, so that each and everyone can express themselves in the best conditions. Registrations are already open. Early-bird prices are available until January 1st, 2017.
The Bâle race will be paired up with a women's foot-running race unfolding on the same day. 1500 women are expected at the start of the 5 or 10 km-race. The foot-runners will start before the skaters.
The City Skate events of Bâle and Baldeggersee in Hitzkirch will count for the general ranking of the Baden-Würtemberg Cup.
Last but not least, and for the first time in the history of the Swiss Skate Tour, the mythical skating marathon of Engadin, the fastest in the world, will host the 2017 European Championships of Skating Marathons.
This year, the Swiss Skate Tour will celebrate its 6th anniversary... And the Linthmarathon its 20th!
