The Eiger, the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc. Ryan, Lassen and I had 1 week to spare before starting our run across the Alps and those peaks were calling our name. We crowded into a truly compact compact-sized European car and set off to zip around Switzerland for some seriously amazing trail runs in the shadows of those giants.
First stop: Grindelwald, Switzerland – home of the Eiger. Straight up from town, into and out of the rain and the clouds, and before we knew it we’d already climbed 6,000 vertical feet in less than 5 miles. Welcome to the Alps!
