MatteSky - Matterhorn skyrunning workshop

The only official Skyrunning workshop, instructed by top professional mountain athletes

This 2nd Matterhorn Skyrunning Workshop, is designed to teach amateur
mountain runners the best practice of skyrunning and to prepare them for demanding races, including trail running in the most iconic location
at the foot of the Matterhorn.

The master-class will be held by world famous experts for a group of 10-15 students, one to one, indoors and out, right on the mountain where most of the action will be.

The instructors will use demos, exercises, real-life examples and give the students personal feedback and advice.

Lectures and presentations will be held in the evenings covering theories and scientific research. Presentations and videos will accompany the
experience as well as recovery activities.
