The Patrouille des Glaciers 2020 called off.
The rapid development of the health situation in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic and the decisions of the Federal Council and the canton of Valais are forcing the command of the Patrouille des Glaciers to cancel the 2020 edition.
The decisions of the Federal Council and the Council of State of Valais to prohibit any events of more than 100 respectively 50 people until April 30, 2020 oblige the command of the Patrouille des Glaciers to give up the 2020 edition.
The health and safety of the participants, as well as the soldiers involved in the race together with the civil partners, are of primary importance. A large part of the dedicated supporters, especially the medical personnel, are no longer available, since from now on they will mainly support the civil authorities.
The command of the Patrouille des Glaciers and all of its partners are convinced that you as an athlete and mountaineer show their solidarity and understand this refusal, which is important for the health and safety of everyone in the current circumstances. Thank you for registering for this edition.
Participants will receive additional information next week, including a possible reimbursement of registration fees.
We look forward to seeing you again at the next edition of the Patrouille des Glaciers, which will take place from April 25th to May 1st 2022 and thank everyone for the trust they have placed in us.
