Since 1969, the "Engadiner" has been held every year on the second Sunday in March over 42 kilometres. During the marathon week, various races are held and the Marathon Village (new in Pontresina) becomes a popular meeting place for locals and guests.

The 42 km route from Maloja to S-chanf or the half-marathon route from Maloja to Pontresina offers an incomparable running experience through the beautiful, snow-covered Upper Engadine.
