Spring trail week

19-04-2020 - 26-04-2020
The Spring trail week is a week for both experienced and starting coach runners who want to prepare for the upcoming trail season or just want to experience a fun week in the mountains with fellow coach runners. We will still partly walk on snow and winter trails, but we will also discover the first spring flowers. The distances that are run vary between 10 and 30 km. There is also room for other activities this week, such as cycling, walking, swimming or just reading a book
This trail week is for experienced and starting coach runners. An extra loop is made on almost all routes or an abbreviation is devised if someone wants to walk a little shorter or longer. However, the program is structured in such a way that anyone who can run a half marathon in the Netherlands within 2 hours should also be able to easily complete everything here. Our goal is to offer a fun week for all participants, where effort is alternated with relaxation. It is not about the kilometers, but about the experience of our beautiful nature. Everyone must be able to find their challenge on beautiful single trails, varying from sloping to extremely steep.

Information

Emergency numbers and insurance

1414 REGA. In Switzerland you can rely on the mountain rescue service: the REGA. They will save you at all times, but whether the costs must be paid by you depends on your insurance. The mountain rescue campaign will also be free of charge if you have a membership with REGA. It is therefore advisable to take out an insurance policy with the KBF when hiking in Switzerland or to become a member of the REGA (CHF 30).

112/144: European / Swiss emergency number. In fact, it doesn't matter if you need the police (117), fire brigade (118), or ambulance (144), it is all processed by the same center. Call this number for which it is intended: only in emergency!

+41 (0) 767980413. My phonenumber. You can call me at any time, I would also like to be informed about a possible incident if I am not there, so that I can provide support. Of course it is possible that there is no network available at different places in the mountains.


Unfortunately this trip has been canceled due to a lack of participants or bad weather conditions. However, please Contact me for any questions.
