Avid runners can run from St. Moritz Dorf up to Piz Nair, thereby ascending over 1,200 vertical meters in one go.
Distance 8.4 km
The running route leads from the village centre of St. Moritz (1,822 metres above sea level) via Salastrains and Signal up to the Piz Nair (3,057 metres above sea level) and, in addition to sporting challenges, offers a spectacular view of the Upper Engadin on arrival at the finish point. The mountain railways and cableways offer the possibility of handing in your luggage (backpack, sports bag, etc.) at the bottom station of the funicular railway in St. Moritz Dorf. Your bags are then transported up to the Piz Nair, where you can collect them again. This allows you to delight in the breathtaking views from the mountain restaurant comfort in dry clothes.
On Saturday before the Engadine Summer Run (mid August) the Vertical Summer Run Free Fall will take place. The goal is the platform "free fall", which served as the starting point of the men's downhill at the FIS Alpine Ski World Championships.
