About the race

A beautiful run through the Val-de-Travers region of the Jura mountains on the border of France, the Défi International has developed into a full weekend of races. The Défi now consists of several races, over the weekend: the Swiss Canyon Ultra Trail at 111km, the 81km Swiss Canyon Trail, the Swiss Canyon Trail of 51km with 2230 meters of climbing, the Swiss Canyon Trail of 31km, and the newest Swiss Canyon Trail of 16k. The 45km may also be run as a 3-person relay with 14km for each runner.

Often overlooked, the Jura is a friendly, accessible range – less steep than its famous neighbors nearby, with fabulous trail running opportunities through a pastoral and bucolic setting.
