How to Trailrun Next Level «auf Spitzen»

The «Next Level» series is entering into it’s second round! Long distances and lots of altitude are again part of this year’s program. Join us on the breathtaking trails around Grindelwald, and be part of our Trail Running Community! The workshops will be led and supervised by Salomon athletes and ambassadors, sharing their tips, tricks and “know how”. Tips on training, nutrition and equipment are guaranteed.

About the route: Our destination, “Spitzen” is near the “Fernandes Hütte”, which is passed during the Eiger Ultra Trail on the E101 route. From our starting point at the Backdoor Shop, we will follow the route along the Terrassenweg-Aellfluh-Sattelhalten-Holewang-Spillmatten-Hireleni-Spitzen. The way back then leads us past the beautiful Bachalpsee towards the Waldspitz, and from there back down to the shop where a fine aperitif awaits us.

Requirements: You are a regular trail runner and experienced on the trails. Elevation gains are a regular part of your running training. If you feel up to the challenge, we look forward to your registration!

Equipment: Suitable clothing for the weather and good, off-road running shoes. If you like, bring your poles with you – there are special techniques for using these on the trail sand we will share with you how to use the poles optimally. We also recommend a running backpack with food and a drink. Pack a windbreaker and, depending on the weather forecast, also rainwear!
(Shoes, poles and backpacks can be tested free of charge in the Backdoor Shop)

Upon finishing, join us for refreshments at the store! Recharge with drinks and nibbles. A cozy conclusion and exchange among all participants rounds off the experience.
