How to Trailrun - Next Level «Chrinnenhorn»

14.08.2021, Grindelwald

The "Next Level" series is entering into it’s second round! Long distances and lots of altitude are again part of this year's program. Join us on the breathtaking trails around Grindelwald, and be part of our Trail Running Community! The workshops will be led and supervised by Salomon athletes and ambassadors, sharing their tips, tricks and "know how". Tips on training, nutrition and equipment are guaranteed.

Upon finishing, join us for refreshments at the store! Recharge with drinks and nibbles. A cozy conclusion and exchange among all participants rounds off the experience.

As a bonus, you will get a 20% discount voucher from Salomon on Salomon trail running products. And of course, we will again raffle a running shoe in September among all participants of the series! , Attend at least 1 event to be in the running to win a Salomon S/LAB Pulsar trail running shoe! And we'll go one better: For the Altitude King or Queen of the whole series, the title "Backdoor HTTR Champ" is waiting at the end. This title is of course also associated with a prize!

Requirements: You run a lot and are very well trained. Altitude is a regular part of your running training. If you feel up to the challenge, then we are looking forward to your registration!
Important: The route can be adapted or changed depending on the conditions.
Equipment: Suitable clothing for the weather and good, off-road running shoes. If you like, bring your poles with you - there are special techniques for using these on the trail sand we will share with you how to use the poles optimally. We also recommend a running backpack with food and a drink. Pack a windbreaker and, depending on the weather forecast, also rainwear!
(Shoes, poles and backpacks can be tested free of charge in the Backdoor Shop)
About the trail: A beautiful summit trail that leads from the shop to the Upper Grindelwald Glacier. The technical trail passes the Glecksteinhütte and offers everything from waterfalls to ice and snow! If luck is on our side, we will even encounter ibex. The trail is very exposed in places and should only be attempted by experienced mountain walkers with the proper equipment. Back in the store, we have more than earned the aperitif!

Distance: Approx. 20km/1750m ascent
Special: It revolves around the theme "Nutrition". There will be the possibility to test products from NA (Nutriathletic). Their ambassadors will be happy to give advice on the subject.
Duration: Approx. 6 hours
