55 km and 4'200 m D+

Would you mind a visit of the most beautiful alpine range of the Vaud Riviera?

Did you already dream about running along the whole range of ridges and summits that oversee Montreux?

The MXALP lets you achieve this in one, unforgettable day.

You will start from Montreux for some 55 km and 4200 m positive elevation, and will run through almost all the summits, along an authentic and fantastic trail path. The gorgeous view of Lake Leman from the Cubly, the Mont-Blanc sight from the Cape aux Moines, the beautiful scenery of the Vaud Alps from the Rochers de Naye, the Perthuis d'Aveneyre or the Malatraix ridge will be with you all along this demanding trail.

Let yourself be tempted! And we did not tell you all yet. It will be breathtaking!
