Engadin La Diagonela

9th edition on 22th January 2022

The classic cross-country event Engadin La Diagonela offers top athletes and amateur athletes a unique experience through the Upper Engadin.

The route of La Diagonela will be changed for 2022. The current starting point will be moved from Zuoz to Pontresina. This change has the advantage that, on the one hand, the athletes will not have to run the section between Zuoz and Samedan twice. On the other hand – and this is probably the more important point for the popular runners – the distance will be 10 km shorter (new distance 55 km). The start will be at the cross-country centre in Pontresina and the route will continue via the Samedan golf course along the previous route to St. Moritz, the Val Roseg on to Zuoz. The finish remains the village square in Zuoz. 

The event offers four races, the 55 km long «La Diagonela», the 27 km long «La Pachifica» and the 11 km long «La Cuorta». Along the 55 km long race will be held a teamevent «La Stafetta» as well.
