"SMOKE ON THE WATER"
27 July 2024
SMOKE ON THE WATER and TRAIL
15KM, 700 M D+
The spirit of the Giants of Music has floated over Montreux for decades, so join this event where sporting effort will be combined with good sound and rhythm throughout the course.
Start in front of the Freddie Mercury statue for the most rock'n'roll trail in Switzerland and the rest of the world. A unique experience, at dusk, to discover the 'mountain side' of the Pearl of the Riviera.
Whether you're looking to immerse yourself in the world of trail running, blow your brains out, or just have fun with friends in an extraordinary musical atmosphere along the route, this is the place to be.
Bring your disguises and moustaches, and Freddie will be waiting for you for a night of madness that will continue on Clarens beach, finishing in front of a concert by one of Queen's best cover bands.
WE WILL ROCK YOU!

CAR PARK & TRANSPORTATION
Most underground parking places in Montreux (www.cartoriviera.ch/parkings/) propose a reduced fee from 7pm onward. There are also a few hundreds meters away from the Place du Marché free parking places overnight.
For those who can, consider car-sharing or public transportation. That is the Trail Runner Way!
★(★) the 15km course already has the characteristics of a real trail, with some changes in altitude, some technical sections but not too many and even some steps - in short, the perfect combination for beginners.
