No Engadine Skimarathon without cablex!

The lifting of the Corona measures, optimal weather conditions and dedicated efforts from our cablex technician, Clà Luzzi, ensured that the 52nd Engadine Skimarathon was a complete success after a two-year break due to the pandemic.

On Sunday, 13 March 2022, around 11,000 runners left the starting line in Maloja at 1820 metres above sea level and completed the 42 kilometres to the finish in S-chanf at 1680 metres above sea level with some fantastic times. Around 80% of the active participants came from Switzerland. In the end, Swiss athletes won both the men's and women's races. Dario Cologna finished second behind Roman Furger in his last international competition. 

Seamless WLAN coverage.

cablex was once again responsible for the overall Internet infrastructure, which it prepared on behalf of Swisscom Event & Media Solutions (SEM). In Maloja, Clà and many volunteers pulled approx. 200 m of line from the wastewater treatment plant to the starting area on the lake and installed it for timekeeping. A connection for the finish line of the half marathon was provided in Pontresina.

Most of the work, however, was done in the finish area at the S-chanf gate. This included the cabling of the media centre as well as the installation of optical fibre switches to the broadcasting vans and reporters' booths. Routine work for our specialist, which must however be carried out in concentrated and error-free manner to enable fault-free connections and data transmissions. 

Clà Luzzi, ICT technician in the Field Services are, was once again involved in this renowned ski event with heart and soul, and was quick to find the right words for his deployment: 

The Engadine Skimarathon in my home canton is quite a fol festival. Families meet up with athletes and stand along the course to cheer on their acquaintances and relatives. The event is always perfectly organised and the atmosphere on site is very relaxed, and I'm already looking forward to my technical work deployment in winter 2023.
