About Swiss Alpine Irontrail

On the eastern edge of Switzerland, where the mountains meet the sky, the Swissalpie is more than a race! Take a deep breath and dive into an unforgettable experience.

The area Davos / Bergün is full of contrasts and its diversity is one of its greatest treasures. Nature has remained untouched and time appears to have stopped! Its long history lives side by side with the excitement of the future and builds another unique facet of this region.

Choose your preferred running category and join a vibrant race full of colour. Experience the marvellous and captivating countryside and places where the grandeur of the landscape is rivalled only by the majesty of the mountains! Along the race track you will develop a new passion for the imposing mountain scenery surrounded by fairytale forests, deep canyons, secluded areas and rural villages.

In order to adjust to the altitude spend some days in Davos and join our “Highseven” side-event program which offers a variety of mostly free workshops, track-inspection and trainings. The alpine climate is healthy for your body, mind and soul!

The route is paved for the ultimate racing event in the Alps – the Swissalpine Marathon and the Swiss Irontrail will be merged and will take place under the new Swissalpine® umbrella brand.

For the runners, a new running festival will be held late July with highlights from both events! With the merger, the individual races could also be further refined – there will be three new running series under the umbrella brand, which have different characteristics:

Highlights

Unlike its little sister Klosters, Davos is more cool than quaint. But what the resort lacks in Alpine prettiness, it makes up for with seductive skiing, including monster runs descending up to 2000m, and après-ski parties. It is also the annual meeting point for the crème de la crème of world capitalism, the World Economic Forum. Global chat fests aside, Davos inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (of Sherlock Holmes fame) to don skis and Thomas Mann to pen The Magic Mountain.

Davos comprises two contiguous areas, each with a train station: Davos Platz and the older Davos Dorf.
