Market research says it all: Trail running is primarily practiced by amateur joggers on easy to moderately difficult terrain in order to stay physically and mentally healthy.
We know what trail runners prefer: natural landscapes with a variety of trails along mountain lakes and rivers as well as in forests. And complementary offers such as excellent accommodations, culinary delights, along with wellness and other sporting opportunities.
In the Engadin we can satisfy all these desires. Between Maloja and S-chanf, trails lead from the valley floor to the top of the mountains above the timberline and include viewpoints. And the variety of recreational activities/additional offers can fulfill every wish.
In trail running, the weather and the terrain in particular determine the equipment. It is important to bring at least the following equipment with you to the Engadin , or to buy on site in a specialized sports store.
The Via Grischuna leads in seven stages over 165 kilometers with around 9,000 meters in altitude from Davos to St. Moritz. Trail runners can look forward to varied trails that lead past numerous mountain lakes, a unique Romanesque culture and hotels that are friendly to trail running. The stage locations in the Engadin are in Spinas, Sils, Pontresina and St. Moritz.
