Running in Arosa

Running Event in Arosa

The Swiss Snow Walk and Run is held every January in Arosa. The running trails in Arosa are so good, the annual Swiss Snow walk and run Event, held each January in Arosa,  is becoming ever more popular.

Summer and Winter, people walk, nordic walk, run…in clean air, with stunning scenery, on interesting, well signposted routes, for all abilities.

In winter, after your days skiing, feel free to go for a warm down jog, followed by a sauna, and steam bath, then relax by the open log fire in front of a 75″ Netflix film, and dine in the comfort of your own home.

Switzerland´s Source of Vitality

Explorers throughout history have searched for the legendary fountain of youth. And while the elusive fountain has yet to be found, certain places across the world have emerged as centres where people live substantially longer than the worldwide average (around 71 years), and each has its own secret source of vitality.

We talked to residents in some of the countries where people live the longest, as ranked by the 2017 World Happiness Report, to uncover the reasons why these places seem to nurture longevity.

Inside Switzerland

Men fare better in Switzerland than anywhere else in the world, living to be 81 on average. As one of Europe’s wealthiest countries, access to high-quality healthcare, strong personal safety and sense of wellbeing contributes to the high rank.  some studies even point to the country’s high intake of cheese and dairy as a leading factor.  Men fare better in Switzerland than anywhere else in the world

Though the country can be very career focused with many expats moving for work at one of the country’s many international headquarters, its central location makes it easy to balance frequent relaxing escapes. “It’s a career pinnacle, location-wise,” said Gatti, who has also lived in Switzerland. “Living here allows for wonderful weekend trips all over the continent and to spend time outdoors in the enchanting Alps.” The schools are also some of the “best on the planet,” he added, which makes it appealing to young families.

Powder Skiing Around Arosa

With higher than average snowfall, and skiing being amongst hiking, snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing, tobogganing, as general past times in Arosa, the quality of snow is excellent.

A sheltered bowl with north facing slopes help retain the powder for longer than most resorts.

Ask for Helen or Mike for on-piste instruction through ABC Ski School, or ask for an all mountain guide to benefit from their local knowledge of off-piste mountain safety.

Chalet Runca, of course, is The Place to Stay when on Holiday in Arosa!
