Trailrunning workshop

Description

Connect, learn and have fun

A weekend with likeminded people, packed with insights from Dynafit athlete Pascal Egli and guided trailruns in the stunning surroundings of the Unesco World Heritage site of Sardona and the Rhine valley. Test the latest Dynafit trailrunning shoes and enjoy a (coached) yoga session and recover in the sauna or whirlpool.

Who is this for?

This workshop is for trailrunners, training at least once a week for 1h. It will be challenging, but as for other great things the rewards will be all the more satisfying. We have 30 slots available and will split in two or three groups for each run, to cover all fitness- and skill levels from unhurried “epicures” to the ones who plan to compete with Pascal. You should be able to understand German as this will be the language used for the presentation and during the guided runs. Yoga experience is not needed.

Equipment

We’ll be running on trails in the mountains. Proper (trailrunning) shoes with grip and appropriate clothes including a rain jacket are required. If you have a running bag or vest, bring it along to carry water and food especially for our longer run on Sunday, where we have lunch on the trails. We will provide mats for the yoga session.

Please use public transport for your travel to preserve the beautiful nature we’re running through. We planned check-in time, so that you arrive just in time taking the direct connection from Chur.


Trailrunning area Laax

The workshop takes place in Flims (GR), located in the heart of the mountains, easily accessible by public transport and offering great infrastructure. The diverse nature up here serves as a perfect playground with everything from mystical forests, deep gorges, crystal clear lakes, wild mountain ridges and high peaks. For lunch and dinner we get to chose from several local restaurants curating menus with love and care.

Hotel Arena Guesthouse

The Hotel is divided in three main parts with different style and level of comforts. The Arena Guesthouse is our choice, because it is a bit quieter than the Lodge and offering comfortable rooms, a little spa with sauna, steam room and whirlpool. We’ll start and end the day in the cosy lounge with open fire and for the yoga session, we can use our own separate room with plenty of space.
