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.

Hands down the best trail running resource on the internet.

-Nelson

[Via Valais] was an absolutely incredible experience, and it fully lives up to the "best trail run in the world" hype.

-Ian

I was just looking at the photos (for about the 100th time...) from our Via Valais trip and I wanted to thank you for sharing this route. It was the most amazing trip we've ever done.

-Barbara

Thanks to Dan and Kim for all their hard work on the site. It made my trip. In the age of so much shit content, please keep fighting the good fight!

-Ryan

Just wanted to send a HUGE thank you for all of the suggestions and for creating the best trail running book ever. We have about 20+ more runs to check off from the book so you know we will be back!

-Sara

You helped to inspire a lot of our adventures this year. Thanks for that!

-Anonymous

I used this site for all my routes for a 4-day running trip to Chamonix. Bonus: I actually met Kim and Dan on the trail.

-Ryan

The Via Valais was an adventure of a lifetime, and we're incredibly grateful to have experienced it! Big thanks to the route developers!

Absolutely beautiful and the best trail running we’ve ever had. Rosegtal will forever be the most memorable run of our lives.
