OUR INSPIRATION

The association "Denivelé Positif", known for the  organisation of the Montreux Trail Festival and the Humanitrail proudly present the start of of the very first race crossing an entire alpine country. The challenge starts at our neighbour Liechtenstein's capital Vaduz and will cross Switzerland from east to west over a distance of 390 km (24'000 m D+), passing through 7 cantons 17 summits and visiting 33 communes with spectacular views. From high mountains tops, to folkloric small alpine villages to mountain lakes. During this unique adventure, you most likely get a glimpse of the beautiful wildlife and meet mouflons, marmots, and ibex. 

Our inspiration comes from Diego Pazos, co-founder of Dénivelé Positif, who ran SOLO in 2020 solo the Via Alpina from Gaflei (above Vaduz) to Montreux. His time of 79 hours and 36 minutes is to date the Fastest Known Time (FKT) ever. At his arrival he said that he wished everyone could experience what he had experienced in 2020. With that in mind we started to see what it takes to add such a race to the calendar of Ultra Trail Running. 


On this first edition in 2022, only a limited number of runners will be able to experience this magical journey through the Swiss alps. The race will be open for solo, duo or trio runners. 


The prices
- Solo runners: 695 CHF
- Duo runners: 1'295 CHF
- Trio runners: 1'895 CHF
 

(Age limit: over 18 years old)
 

There will be a classification for solo runners and another for duo/trio runners.  
The Duo runners and at least two of the trio runners must cross the finish line together to be classified.


The existing know-how of the Montreux Trail Festival, and the Humanitrail is used to create a unforgettable experience for runners and supporters.

We are very excited to see you at the starting line in Vaduz on Saturday 23rd of July 2022 and are even more excited to welcome you after 390km at the Place de Marché in Montreux. 

Sit back, open a beer and click on the video above to enjoy a taste of what awaits you!
