BCVS Warm-up

Once again this year, "warm-up" training sessions will give you the best advice on how to prepare for race day. Organized in conjunction with Tarcis Ançay's BCVS Mount Salomon Team (4x Swiss marathon champion), they will be held successively in Sion and Martigny at the beginning of May:
  • Tuesday, May 7 Sion
  • Tuesday, May 14 Martigny

Program in each city:

  • 5:30 pm : Meeting in front of the BCVS
  • 5:45 pm: Group warm-up
  • 6:00 p.m.: Departure for training according to four levels: beginner, intermediate, sport and elite
  • from 6:30 pm : Aperitif offered by BCVS


Your advantages when participating in a BCVS Warm-up:

  • A free race T-shirt
  • At each training session, two entries will be drawn at random during the Apérito, and the winners will receive a free entry to the BCVS 2024 Valais Terroir Marathon.


Terms and conditions:

Registration is compulsory until Monday 12:00 p.m. preceding the warm-up date on the organizer's website. As places are limited, registrations are processed in chronological order of receipt.



Each year, the organization defines a costume theme for the runners who participate in the festive races on the marathon, half marathon, 10km and 5km courses.

The theme chosen by the organization this year is " Music All "in honor of Martigny, the city of art. In fact, the same weekend will see the Gospel Air Festival, which brings together gospel groups from French-speaking Switzerland and neighboring countries in adifferent town each year , performing at different venues in the city center during the day. The theme chosen for this year's event, and for the gala evening to be held on Saturday evening, May 25, 2024, at the Salle du Midi, will be a tribute to the great Tina Turner. Various synergies are planned between the organizations to bring music to all participants. Two good reasons to celebrate in Martigny.

As a gospel singer, rocker or disco DJ, let yourself be inspired by all musical styles and your own creativity.
