Trail running community

Hello-
I will be relocating from California to Basel (with my work) over the summer. I'm a passionate trail and mountain runner; are there any trail running groups in the Basel area? I recognize that Basel is quite flat amidst a very mountainous country! Even if not in Basel, I'd love to get connected with the Swiss ultramarathon community. Thank you.

Re: Trail running community

If your running is for building up a thirst that requires quenching with beer, these folks might interest you. There are also one or two "serious" runners in the Hash who do stuff like the Jungfrau Marathon.

Re: Trail running community

Welcome (soon) and enjoy! I don't have club recommendations in Basel, but will suggest that you put the Swiss Alps 100 ultra on your bucket list.

An American's perspective:

Re: Trail running community

There are several trail runners in the Basel Running Club, which is primarily German speaking and less expat filled than the Dragons, depending on what you're looking for. The majority of the members do focus on road races, but we've been represented at Swiss Alps, Madrisa, Eiger, Jungfrau, etc.

This isn't a knock on the Dragons - I've never run with them. Just providing an option.

Re: Trail running community

Thanks, I'll have a look at that too. My home running group is also BRC :-) (Berkeley Running Club).
