RUN THE VAL D'ANNIVIERS
With over 490km of mountain trails to discover, the Val d'Anniviers is the perfect place to stretch those running legs. From rolling alpine meadows through the trees to lofty, technical ridgelines above the glaciers there is something here to delight every avid trail runner.
The valley is also home to the iconic Sierre-Zinal mountain race; a 31km, 2200m+ climb and traverse which straddles the valley and offers unparalleled views of the "Imperial Crown", the six 4000m peaks which dominate the skyline. So whether you join us for race week or wish to explore the trails at your own leisure, we look forward to welcoming you.
