Engadin Ski Marathon

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Seeing our leaders Eric and Lynne waiting to give me a big hug as I crossed the finish line! Completing the marathon gave me such a sense of achievement and I'm definitely going to do it again in 2017.

What did you think of your group leader?

Eric and Lynne are just great. They both worked really hard to make sure everyone had a great time and that we all had the best possible chance of finishing the race.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

While it's definitely easier than running a marathon, it's a serious undertaking to ski 42 Km at quite a high altitude. You don't need to train obsessively, but you do need to be relatively fit.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The hotel Crusch Alba is superb. It's comfortable, warm and the food is out of this world. When you're training for a marathon you need to eat well and sleep well. The hotel ticks all the boxes for me!
