The start of the original route of the Aletsch Women’s Race lies on the left side of the valley, immediately after the railway crossing on the way to Fieschertal. The course initially takes you through the district of Moos, then continues along the Gogwärgiweg trail and parallel to the Wysswasser glacier river until Fieschertal. Once you reach the playground in Fieschertal, cross the Wysswasser and hike to Fiesch via the Bregeraweg trail on the other side of the valley. The course finishes at the tennis and fitness centre. Please note: You will have to cross a railway line just before the end of the route. Please be especially careful here!

Author’s recommendation

Men can train on the race’s original route too. Unless the Women’s Race is currently taking place, the motto is “All runners welcome!”
