A Stunning 3 Day Trail Run Through Switzerland's Rätikon

With flowing trails and wild, varied terrain, challenge yourself to this Swiss Alpine trail running adventure.

Description

The Rätikon is a wild mountain range between Switzerland, Austria and Liechtenstein, known for its impressive calc stone walls and flowy trails. Traveling through it you'll run through remote alpine areas, enjoy crystal clear mountain lakes and stay in charming mountain huts. Expect impressive views, encounters with wild animals such as ibexes, and stunning sunsets.

With 70km, 5000m of elevation gain and limited comfort, this adventure is only for tough and experienced trail runners. However the stages can be adjusted thanks to a wide network of well maintained trails, cable cars and the many mountain huts in the area.
