Titre 7. Newsletter Irontrail - course presentation 4/5

Dear Irontrailers,

If I were a bird, I'd sing a song… the birds are singing, so spring must be just around the corner. It's time to sniff the Irontrail air…

Apart from the T201 which is the longest distance race, we are also launching a teaser trail, the T21 from Arosa to Chur. We want to offer seasoned ramblers, day trippers and trail beginners the opportunity to give this wonderful kind of sport a try. Of course, you could also take it at a leisurely pace and, together with friends, associates or work colleagues, turn the T21 into your own special event. Because where else would you get a day or two that are organised from start to finish, including a Swiss Ticket for travel, catering for the whole hike and transportation of your luggage to Chur? You will find the details here…

But for now let's start in Lenzerheide, with the latest highlights of the T201:


Lenzerheide – Chur (km 154 - 201)

km 156 – 158

  • A fascinating, steep section which is like a primeval forest

km 158 - 170

  • Single trail full of variety over the Rothorn with extensive views
  • Past the source oft he River Plessur and three idyllic mountain lakes

km 181 – 191

  • The final section offers an extremely attractive Alpine landscape at an average altitude of 2,300 metres above sea-level

km 191 – 201

  • Fantastic view towards Chur… the finish is not far away now.
