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.
