This was the first year, we did this race. I have heard of it by accident. Lake Klöntal is about 60 kilometers away from Einsiedeln. You have to travel with car about an hour though it is just behind the moutains. But with the car you have to go around the mountains. The lake is located at the base of one of the highest mountains here. I can see this mountain from my home and it is more than 3000 meters high.
The race is along the lake, 12.8 kilometers in distance and half of the turn is in the wood going heavily up and down. The race itself is organized very nicely. There are only about 100 participants and after the race all participants get a saucage and beer. The organizer created a campfire at the shore of the lake and we were sitting there all together until deep in the night. Very nice race! We will come back next year.
