We welcome you to the Swiss Alps 100 trail race, where you will experience some of the finest trails and views of the famous Swiss Alps mountains. Our courses, which are part run on the UNESCO World Heritage, are incredibly scenic, yet strenuous and challenging. Some parts of the course, like the 1350 meter (4430ft) climb to the Breithorn in only 10.3km (6.4 miles), will test each runner with terrain and surroundings that are truly magnificent. Make your summer special and come run the Swiss Alps 100 trail race.

All of our three distances are majestic, challenging, and all within the Oberwallis region in the south side of Switzerland. The 50K has 2800 meter (9190'), the 100K has 6740 meter (22110'), and the 160K has 10440 meter (34250') of elevation gain. We provide a fully stocked aid station every 7KM to 10KM at each distance. We have race-shirts, 160KM sub-24 antic silver and sub-48 antic brass buckles, 50KM and 100KM finisher medals, first place and age-group awards, and a runner's post-race meal. Sign up for the Challenge - Run it for the Beauty.
