Thread: Sierre Zinal

    Sierre to Zinal

    I have a place on the Sierre to Zinal,

    does anyone know about the orgnisation aspects, e.g. where to camp, what happens after the race, etc ? Any info greatly appreciated.

    Is anyone going to do it ?

    I seem to have doubled up this thread, I've also started one in the beginners section then realised that this is probably a better place for it... sorry!

    My other half did this race two years ago. We camped on the campsite in Zinal, along with several other runners. The guides office in Zinal had all race information and you could enter/register there. It would probably been possible to cadge a lift from other runners down to Zinal for the start although a bus was put on for an extra fee (and an early start).
    There was a meal for runners at the finish and may have been other things put on in the evening but unfortunately my other half was in no state to attend anything after the race!!

    Ilkley Harriers have a small group going out for the great Sierre-Zinal mountain race in Switzerland on Sunday Aug 12th. We've rented a fantastically well-situated chalet in Zinal for the nights of Friday, Sat and Sun, but because of the usual reasons, three of the original party have had to drop out, leaving space in our luxury pad. Can anyone make use? The cost would be 20 a night, in return for which you are promised some lively company. There is also a flight still booked which could be transferred to you, leaving Liverpool for Geneva on Friday morning, and possibly also a return flight. Let me know if you're interested.

    There's nothing on the Sierre-Zinal website about asking for a medical certificate, coach. They just expect you to be in good health.
