The Saint Bernard dog: 

  • He is the Swiss national dog
  • He is the ambassador of the canton of Valais
  • This "rescuer" is the perfect example of how to surpass oneself
  • He represents solidarity and courage, essential values in sport
  • It continues its social and therapeutic missions
  • The Barry Foundation is an example of heritage preservation

Just like his ancestors, this courageous dog will transmit to the participants of the Marathon the motivation to train. He will reinforce the spirit of solidarity between athletes and encourage them to surpass themselves!
