CROSSING SWITZERLAND

Summer 2019

Diego Pazos discovered trail running in 2011 and there’s been no stopping him since.

In 2016 he represented Switzerland in the world championships.

As well as being one of the best runners in the world, in 2017 he had the vision to create the Montreux Trail Festival combining sport and music.

His project, ‘Crossing Switzerland’, consists of running over the Swiss Alps in 120 hours-that’s less than 5 days! He’ll link Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein at 1594m altitude, with Lausanne on the shores of Lake Geneva. This route will take him over 17 mountain tops, 14 Swiss alpine passes and six cantons.

This traverse has never been done in such a fast time.
Normally hikers complete this diagonal line over the course of 22 days and in multiple stages. Diego’s plan is to save time by running the course non-stop, night and day!

Through this unprecedented feat Diego hopes to showcase Switzerland and its mountains; to encourage people to come and experience it for themselves.

He also wants to put across his own ideas about the importance of pushing your limits, conservation of nature and connections through sport…all while setting a record time for the course!

“We are on this earth to live and to share our feelings…the kind of feelings we experience in the great adventures of modern times”.                   -Diego Pazos
