A RACE FOR EVERYONE
The queen of races and the ultimate challenge, “The MXtrem160” starts in Montreux, in front of the mythical Castle of Chillon and will be an alpine, technical, ruthless trail through which runners will discover the entire Alpine region of Vaud, across 14 municipalities, 165 kilometers and 13,600 meters of positive elevation! Why not finish with a swim in the lake on the finish line!

The Leysin30 and Villars60 are races on ridges, allowing runners to join Montreux through breathtaking sceneries. A delicious blend of challenge, self-transcendence and discovery. The Montreux Trail Festival will also showcase races specifically designed for children, a daycare and also a parent-child relay race integrated in the Leysin30 race.

"The town of Montreux and its famous market place offer a wonderful setting for multiple finish lines that will be crossed from the Saturday morning through to the Sunday evening. Music will be a major element and a common theme of this brand new and exclusive event."

THE FREDDIE’S NIGHT15
"The Freddie's Night15" (for Freddie Mercury) will be a perfect illustration of the atmosphere of this event. On the Saturday night 28th July, participants will compete on a 15km loop starting in the old town of Montreux, to the top of the Cubly and with a finale in the Gorges du Chauderon. Equipped with head lamps, they will run to the rhythm of various music styles - a complete novelty!

Trail running is also about sharing and solidarity. Runners will have the opportunity to fund a humanitarian project for the "Mercury Phoenix Trust", a trust funded by the members of rock band Queen to provide help to children living with AIDS, especially in Africa.
