While in the Engadine, we’ll be hosted by Roberto Rivola, one of Switzerland’s most talented, supportive and friendly trail running guides. Roberto grew up in Switzerland, settling in this region nearly a decade ago – it’s a place where, as he puts it, “I find inspiration and can live my passion for nature.” Roberto has run and raced around the world, from Hawaii to Iceland, and even the Gobi desert, often finishing on the podium for his age group. But, don’t be intimidated – his upbeat energy and enthusiasm always combine for a fun, easy-going experience as you learn to trail run amid some of the world’s most beautiful scenery. Roberto will guide us informally through a series of skills, covering what to bring for a day in the mountains, techniques for climbing and descending, how to nimbly manage different trail surfaces, and how to set an enjoyable, sustainable pace.
In Zermatt, we’ll be joined by Run the Alps guide Giles Ruck, another of the Alps’ noted trail running teachers. In this world-famous mountain village, we’ll use the terrain to our advantage as we learn the basics of pacing on uphills, using trail running poles efficiently and effectively, and running safely and efficiently downhill.
