HISTORY

SWISS CANYON TRAIL was born in 1994 under the name Trail de l’Absinthe. Since then, the race has evolved to welcome more than 2’000 runners in four races: the ultra 111K, the 81K, the 51K and the 31K (also in Nordic Walking). The organizers have always put the wishes and well-being of the runners first, listening to the comments and offering all the essential facilities for the comfort of everyone. Participating in the SWISS CANYON TRAIL is a unique experience!

We wish all the runners to live an event rich in emotions and to take a maximum pleasure in this wonderful, unique and natural environment. Be ready to meet the famous green fairy at a turn! She might just come to your aid where the going gets tough! And a huge THANK YOU to the 500 volunteers who provide an outstanding job.

PARTNER RACES

TWO RACES, COMMON POINTS

Both races are characterized by their natural environment. The island of Reunion and the green valleys of western Switzerland are ideal terrain for trail races. LA DIAGONALE DES FOUS AND SWISS CANYON TRAIL They have been building an exceptional partnership for several years. Building on the obvious similarities between the two races and offering exciting opportunities to interested runners, the collaboration has allowed for the exchange of elite runners and has fostered a closer relationship.

First registered, first served.

MIUT® – Madeira Island Ultra Trail will offer an exciting challenge, across the island, from sea to sea, in a North-West-South-East direction, starting from Porto Moniz, at sea level, with passages through the highest points of the island, and then again at sea level, in Machico.
