Open the race website and it tells you that this is “a race that will introduce you to one of the most famous and iconic valleys of the Alps.” – and they are not wrong! Nestled away in the Swiss canton of Ticino, the Bavona Valley is famed for its cascading waterfalls, centuries-old granite stairways, and airy trails carved into the sides of the mountains.

This is an incredibly scenic trail race in a beautiful area and one that should be high on your “to-do” list if you are in the area.
