The Mürren Inferno takes place every January, and naturally the DHO sends a team across the valley to represent the club. Find out more about the race on the official Inferno site here.

The DHO won the Inferno ballot this year, giving every person that applied for a bib an opportunity to race.  We currently have and impressive 60 entry bibs for the downhill, which will make us one of the biggest teams and must be a record.  (Does anyone know of a bigger team from previous years?)

DHO has launched an online shop to streamline the payment process.  You can now pay for the race entry using a credit card.  This is quick, easy and secure. It also gives us full transparency of who has paid for what.  The majority of racers have already paid using the new shop and the feedback is “wow!”

In 2019 we are also offering: possibility to buy or hire race suits, race training / course inspection, after race dinner and party, and prize giving dinner.  All these can be booked through the shop.  The shop can be found with this link:

Also new for this year we have an Inferno WhatsApp group to help improve communication.  This will give us real time communications on weather conditions, race admin….and where the best party is!

Join us on our dedicated facebook page  DHO Inferno Race  (  There are pictures from previous years, and hints and tips for successful race training.  What would you like say?

Entrance forms will not be submitted without payment.
We do allow people who pay to enter get a race bib and change their mind, a refund, as invariably there is someone else who wants the race entry. So we do refund. We also refund if the entry application is rejected.
