From the canton of Bern to the canton of Valais

From the canton of Bern to the canton of Valais

Take the start in Adelboden at the heart of the Bern canton to get to Crans-Montana in the Valais canton. On the first leg of the journey, the runners will take the famous Via Alpina through the well-tended alpine pastures of the Bernese Oberland to reach the village of Lenk. This is followed by a magnificent but demanding 1400m+ climb, with passages on the side of the cliffs to reach the Rawil Pass (2,427m). The last section in a downhill profile takes you along the sublime lake of Tzeuzier to reach the vertiginous and no less splendid Bisse du Ro. A change of scenery guaranteed!

Transportation between the start and the finish is provided by the organization. Find out more in your runner page.
