In my opinion (and many of the world’s top athletes), the running trails in St Moritz are the very best in the world! Not only are they near endless in every direction, they are traffic free, can be flat, undulating, mountainous or a mixture of all three! Furthermore you can choose between perfectly groomed, wide, hard packed gravel surfaces, smooth forest trails, tarmac, or, again a mix of all 3! To top it all they wind their way through perhaps some of the most stunning Alpine scenery on offer anywhere in the world.
This may well be a big claim, but I’d urge all runners to add St Moritz to their bucket list of places to try. I guarantee it will not disappoint.
When you get there, here’s a guide to some of my favourite places to run
