Although aptly named the Panorama Trail, the first ascent towards Grosse Scheidegg should not be underestimated. Once reached, the spectacular scenery along the route to Oberläger via First and Bachalpsee, the 360° panorama atop the Faulhorn summit at 2680m, and the views to the horizon on route to Schynige Platte, definitely compensate for all the effort and remain long in the memory.

The E51 trail should be completed under the partial self-support principle. This means that as a competitor you are responsible for your own food and drinks between check-points and refreshment zones and must carry the mandatory gear as stated in the Race Regulations.

Shared pain - double the pleasure! The E51 is also available for couples. Go for the team spirit and the collective experience. Handle as team the individual highs and lows during the course. The E51 trail must be accomplished under the partial self-support principle. This means that in between the check-points you as a couple are responsible for your own food and drinks and must carry the mandatory gear as stated in the Race Regulations.

In addition, as a competitor you must be able to complete the race in a partial self-sufficiency according to the ethics of trail running.
