The Engadin Valley

The Engadin Valley is the first place we went to when we wanted to take the sport of Swimrun out of Sweden. The exceptional beauty of the valley speaks for itself.

The Engadin Valley is in the Swiss Alps with the well-known St Moritz in one end of the valley. Mats & Michael raced here in the Adventure Racing World Championships in 2001 and fell in love with the Engadin. The valley has several pristine mountain lakes on the valley floor and also some at altitude, up in the mountains. The trail- running is awesome with some very good vertical. This race is a real test for the athletes.

In July the flowers are in full bloom and the kite-surfers fill Lake Silvaplana on windy days. The weather in this period can really be anything from a nice summer day to a cold, hard day out. Be mentally prepared for the worst and enjoy the best.

The water is clear and crisp with some sections around 11 degrees C, some of the swim sections are long. Dress smart! Do not take the altitude of the course lightly. We strongly suggest several days of on-site to get used to the altitude.

In your registration fee the transportation to the start is included. The race briefing is on Saturday July 8th, 17:00. You can register on Saturday between 14:00 – 17:00. We strongly suggest that you spend a couple of nights in the Engadin to adjust to the altitude.

Stay in Silvaplana before and after the race. We strongly suggest that you book accommodation in Silvaplana over the weekend to have an even better experience. Bring friends and family to enjoy the fantastic Engadin Valley, the race and the after-party.

Travel to Engadin

The best way to reach the Engadin valley is via SWISS to Zurich airport. There you get on the train to Zurich central station. Here you take the train to Chur. In Chur you get on the Glacier Express. Absolutely fantastic train ride.

To drive is not as relaxing.

An alternative is to fly to Bergamo and there rent a car.
