The marathon starts at Interlaken (566m) and runs 42.195 kilometers to Kleine Scheidegg (2100m) through the highest point Eigergretscher (2205m). There is 1639m altitude difference.
Usually marathon has heart-breaking hill, but this marathon course is entire heart-breaking. I wonder if there would be participants for such hard marathon, but surprisingly it was fully booked!
