Swiss Post and Swiss Runners are supporters of the Post-Cup. With the Post-Cup, the initiators promote the Swiss running elite and create an incentive for more athletes to take up running.

Since 2011, the series has been focusing on races in late summer (Jungfrau Mile, Greifensee Run) and before Christmas (Bulle, Basel and Zurich). The Post-Cup attracts runners with total prize winnings of CHF 81,000. All athletes receive a free day pass to travel to the race via public transport.
