Engadin Ultra Trail
DISCOVER THE STORY
For some trail runners, the Engadin Ultra Trail is not entirely new. The Swissalpine Irontrail has already been held three times on parts of the route as the prologue of the well-known and successful Swissalpine Davos. In 2019, the Swissalpine Davos decided to break new ground and trails.
The team around Reto Franziscus and Oliver Wertmann, who had supported the Swissalpine Irontrail in the Engadin in previous years, decided to continue the trail running history in the Engadin.
The adapted routes run through the lower, still less known but no less beautiful part of the Upper Engadine from Zuoz to Celerina. It is the quieter part of the unique high valley on the Inn and not as heavily frequented by tourists as the region around St. Moritz.
The varied trails lead through five historic village centers that are well worth seeing and then back up into the mountains with spectacular viewpoints and famous names such as Corviglia, Muottas da Schlarigna, Muottas Muragl, Munt Seja, the Padella Panoramatrail and Chamanna d'Es-cha.
Again and again there are fascinating panoramic views over the expanse of the Engadine. The runners can overlook a large part of the route in many places and thus always have the next passages in view.
The change of mountain and valley sections not only makes the routes attractive, but also makes it easier to look after the runners.
Runs EUT102, EUT53 and ET23 are ITRA and UMTB qualification races.
In addition to challenging trails and picturesque views, great importance is attached to safety. For each section of the route at alpine height there is an alternative route as a bad weather variant. Large parts of the route can be reached on forest roads and paths with vehicles. 97% of the route has a cellular connection.
We look forward to seeing you!
