Lauenstein in 2009
Marc Lauenstein (born September 15, 1980 in Cormondréche, Neuchâtel) is a Swiss orienteering competitor and runner. He received a silver medal on the long distance at the 2005 World Orienteering Championships in Aichi, and again in Aarhus in 2006. He earned a bronze medal in 2005 as member of the Swiss relay team.
Lauenstein won the World Long Distance Mountain Running Challenge in 2009 at the Kaisermarathon. He won the Sierre-Zinal race in 2013, the Pikes Peak Marathon in 2014 and the Marathon du Mont Blanc in 2015.
He won the Three Peaks Race in 2016 in a time not far outside the long-standing course record, despite snowy conditions on the peaks. Later the same year, he won Giir di Mont from Premana on a route altered by bad weather and followed this with a victory at the Matterhorn Ultraks race in the Skyrunner World Series.
