Picturesque landscapes, breath-taking panoramas at the heart of the Graubünden mountains and a diverse range of adventurous Alpine trails: The Swissalpine is set against a unique, high-altitude backdrop. Races over various distances and in a number of categories will appeal to mountain runners, trail runners and “fun runners” alike. The ultimate challenge and blue ribbon event is the new K68, the successor to the much loved K78.
The K68 race will start at the same time as the K43, at 8am in Davos. The route takes runners through the Dischma Valley, across the Scaletta and Sertig passes and along the panorama trail that links into Sertig, and further over the Fanezfurgga to Monstein. Runners will then head back towards the starting point in Davos via Jatzmeder and the Sertig Valley. Taking in three passes, it is a stunning alpine route!
The well-established and very popular K43 is unchanged. Runners who favour altitude over distance can take on the K20 (2,590 m asl) which features an ascent of Jakobshorn. The K23 from Klosters to Davos and the K10 to Clavadel round off the multifaceted series. Participants will enjoy great support from spectators and musical groups lining the routes.
