SMOKE ON THE WATER AND TRAILS

8KM, 300 M D+

The smaller version of the original Crossing Rocks a.k.a. Freddie's Night.

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!
