Before the start. There was a shower just before the start, but I was confident that the weather would improve
Just after the start
Lauterbrunnen, before the big climb
still in Lauterbrunnen
In Wengen, having a Power Gel, after the first big climb (more to come)
The weather indeed did improve very quickly to reveal the UNESCO world nature heritage mountains which form the majestic background of Jungfrau Marathon (rated as the most beautiful Marathon Course by AIMS)
In the finish line
