Swiss Peaks Trail
The Swiss Peaks Trail became well known for its longest course, the 360 km race and has grown in popularity over the last few years with the addition of the 170km, 100km, marathon and half-marathon courses.
Every race finishes on the shores of Lake Geneva, in the town of Bouveret. The 360 km race starts far away in Oberwald at the eastern end of the Rhône valley. The route winds its way through the high mountain cols and trails of the Pennine Alps, west back towards the smaller hills of the Chablais region near Lake Geneva and the French border. With climbs regularly lasting for at least 1000 meters, this is a route for those well accustomed to big uphill efforts. And given the distance of the longer race, one should also be ready for nd very little sleep. The 170 km, 100 km, and 50 km routes follow the 360 km race course, after starting at their differing starting points along the the 170 km course.
