«We will rock you»… A not to be missed out of the ordinary new challenge!

In an atmosphere of sports, music and culinary delights, whether you are a runner or a spectator, treat yourself to a trip in the atmosphere of Queen and his most legendary member Freddie Mercury in the charismatic Montreux and its Riviera.

«A kind of Magic»: Mountains as far as the eyes can see, the largest lake in Europe, innovative race formats, race profiles that are accessible to all and especially surprises, full of surprises and guaranteed festive atmosphere …

The queen of races and the ultimate challenge, “The MXtrem160” starts in Montreux, in front of the mythical Castle of Chillon and will be an alpine, technical, ruthless trail through which you will discover the entire Alpine region of Vaud, across 14 municipalities such as Leysin and Villars-sur-Ollon, about 165 kilometers and 13,600 meters of positive elevation! Finish with a swim in the lake on the finish line!

La Leysin30 and Villars60 are races on ridges, allowing you to join Montreux through breathtaking sceneries. A delicious blend of challenge, self-transcendence and discovery.

The Night15 reveals the secrets of the gorges of Chauderon at night, transformed for the occasion into a natural night club! Rock n Roll, fun and discovery, put yourself in the shoes of Freddie … and let yourself be transported to the end of the night! Open to all, beginners and devoted party-goers.

The Montreux Trail festival will also showcase races specific for children, a daycare and also a parent-child relay race integrated in La Leysin30 race.

Tired of the traditional “Pasta Party” … Do not miss our restoration areas with an innovative concept that will tickle your taste buds and will definitely convince your families…
