Run the Alps Switzerland: 3o Must-Do Trail Runs

Produced by our team at ALPSinsight, Run the Alps Switzerland is the definitive trail running guidebook to the Swiss Alps. The book contains much more than trail running routes – it’s full of our photos, stories from some of the sport’s characters, general Swiss Alps travel beta, and tips for out on the trail.

About the book



Trail running in the Alps means massive ups, and just as big downs. Our friends at Uphill Athlete have created a Big Vert Training Plan to help with exactly that.
