Rigimarsch – the Swiss 50 km Walk

After having finished the Rigimarsch a couple of years ago, it was time again to push the 50 km through the night in order to finish early in the morning on the Rigi. This event is well organized: 2000 people started around 7-8pm in order to be on the top of the Rigi the next morning around 8-9am – roughly 50 km and a total height of 1550 meters needed to be covered. Out of the 2000 starters, 1650 finished the trip which demonstrates clearly that the Swiss are serious mountain folks.
