AFP PICTURE OF THE YEAR 2010 Racers run in front of the Matterhorn mountain as they leave the Zermatt ski resort during the start the Glacier Patrol, a famous ski alpinism race early on April 22, 2010 in Zermatt. The Glacier Patrol (Patrouille des Glaciers) organized by the Swiss Army sees highly-experienced hiker-skiers trek across the Haute Route along the Swiss-Italian border from Zermatt to Verbier. The race covers 53km (31.8 miles) by foot and ski, with over 7000m gained and lost along the way. AFP PHOTO FABRICE COFFRINI (Photo credit should read FABRICE COFFRINI/AFP/Getty Images) less
