We’re delighted to offer this special trail running adventure with noted US ultra-runner, Krissy Moehl. Coach, author, and winner of dozens of ultra-trail races, Krissy brings a warm and inclusive spirit to the sport that is perfectly in sync with Run the Alps’ philosophy.

Our trip is presented by Run the Alps’ friends at Julbo, and each trip participant will receive a pair of their advanced trail running sunglasses. Joining us for a day or two of trail running photography will be Trail Runner magazine contributor and co-author of Run the Alps: Switzerland, Kim Strom.

We’ll run through Switzerland’s wild Engadine region. We’ll meet with one of the new rising stars in the region, former Olympian and Engadine-based trail runner, Julia Bleasdale. And every trip participant will have a chance to run one of the three Engadine-St. Moritz Ultraks trail races.
