To coincide with the first registration phase for the “Madrisa Trail Klosters presented by LOWA”, the organizers are expanding the range of trails and distances. The new T11 offers the perfect introduction to the world of trail running over 450 metres in altitude. Also, new is the technical and alpine T33 with over 2,200 metres of elevation gain. The highlights of this route include the downhill from Alpenrösli to Schlappintobel, the uphill to Schaffürggli and the Rätschenjoch. This new run is good preparation for the T54 royal route the following year.
Established royal route
“The 'Madrisa Trail' demands a lot from the participants. It is technical and has a challenging altitude profile, but rewards you with a stunning panorama,” says Stephan Hugenschmidt, the winner from 2020 and 2021. No wonder: the T54 royal route adds up to over 4,000 metres of altitude over a distance of 54 kilometres. The run over a ridge in the direction of Gafier Platten is another highlight of the route: when the starting field reaches the popular hiking destination, participants look out over a plain of snow-white, rutted limestone.
Very high proportion of trail on all routes
The already established T24 is somewhat less demanding. This is a panoramic run above the Klosters valley floor and leads over a 70-metre-long suspension bridge. This run is for all those who like it fast and with great views. No matter which distance you choose, all routes have one thing in common: they have a very high proportion of trails. So if you don't fancy trail running primarily on forest roads, you should run the Madrisa Trail.
