Thyon to Dixence is considered one of the more beautiful trail races in the Valais region of Switzerland. Coming in the middle of the season, and with a scenic and relatively short course, it’s become a very popular race. The run starts high on a ridge, and continues above treeline, on a combination of roads and mountain paths, through pastures and alpine areas, to the immense Dixence dam – the finish, in fact, is atop the dam itself. Along the way, runners catch views of the glacier-covered Dent Blanche and the Matterhorn.

This race is part of the Valaisan Cup.
