The ultimate ultra

SwissPeaks 170

The dream of any trailer, a long crossing through the most beautiful peaks and valleys. A Valais connection that will make you dream before, during and after the race. A departure at the bottom of the “20th century building site”, the dam of the Grande Dixence.

You will then cross typical and isolated villages, walk through steep slopes, wild lakes… You will discover places that you can not even imagine exist.
