Claro-Pizzo, first vertical

Hi guys,

Sorry for the late post, but I have been pretty busy in the past weeks with work and training.

On the 4th of October I decided to take part to the first vertical race in my running “career”, I decided to pick one of the most iconic vertical races of Ticino, the Claro-Pizzo. Developing over 10km with an elevation gain of 2500m.

Unfortunately, due to very poor weather and snow at the top of the mountain, the race has been shortened to around 5km and 1500m of elevation.

Iron Trail T41

On Friday the 14th of August, after work, I travelled by train to Davos for the Iron Trail T41.

Me and my girlfriend rented an apartment for the night. After settling down in the apartment we went right away for dinner, pasta, pizza and bruschetta were our dishes for the evening.

The Circular Alpine Marathon Route passes through the most beautiful Alps of Graubünden. From the start in Davos, it leads over the Schatz Alp to the picturesque Stafel Alp, and with splendid views of this area, up to the Furgga meadows. From there, the trail continues over the Strela Pass and back down to Davos.

Lenght: 42.3 km

Elevation: +/– 2290m
