According to legend, the border should be drawn after quarrels between Glarnern and Urnern where two runners met after the first cock crowing. The Glarner fattened their faucet, the Urner left theirs hungry. The Urner Hahn crowed very early and gave his runner a big lead, which allowed him to win the Urner Boden and more. Out of pity the Urner still allowed the Glarner to regain the frontier as far as he could carry him. The Glarner carried him back a fair bit until he collapsed dead.
