2020 turns out to be a challenging year to host your first race, but Cha Cha Cha Ultra race co-directors Emma Bodkin and Lottie Pridham are undeterred. Their website proudly states that “We want to celebrate freedom of movement post-lockdown via the humble trail” and, “We invite all runners from all running communities to get involved and join the metaphorical dance, through the heart of the Swiss Alps.”
They are offering 2 races, both starting in Le Châble, close to the famous ski resort of Verbier in the heart of the Swiss Rhone Valley. The 64km race takes you up to Champex Lac, down to Trient, up to the boarder with France and back to Champex Lac. The route runs along many famous tried and tested trails with fantastic views and fun single track. The 21km race takes the same route but finishes in Champex Lac without the out and back to Trient.
Our fingers are crossed that on September 19th there will be many happy runners Cha Cha Cha-ing their way through the hills.
