La Diagonela, 56 km, classic technique (+694m / -740m)
The attractive 56 km route starts in Pontresina and leads via Celerina, the Stazerwald forest and the famous Lake St. Moritz to St. Moritz. The route continues back to Pontresina via the Stazerwald forest and the natural Val Roseg valley. However, the finish is not yet reached: the route runs alongside Samedan airport, passes the typical Engadine village of La Punt-Chamues-ch and continues via S-Chanf to Zuoz. The finish in the village centre of Zuoz is guaranteed to give you goosebumps.
La Pachifica, 25 km, classic technique (+332m / -378m)
The little sister of the Engadin La Diagonela, the Engadin La Pachifica, also starts in Pontresina. Participants run directly to Zuoz and enjoy the finish in the historic village centre of Zuoz. The final climb into the village demands everything from all participants. The Engadin La Pachifica is part of the Swiss Loppet.
La Cuorta, 6 km, classic technique (+131m / -84m)
The Engadin La Cuorta cross-country race offers all newcomers an attractive route and an unforgettable classic experience in a familiar and relaxed environment. The finish is in the historic village centre of Zuoz, just like the big ones.

La Sfida, (new 29km instead of 30km), free technique (+397m / -268m)
In addition to the races in classic technique, La Sfida in free technique provides an additional challenge on Sunday. The start will be in the Zuoz cross-country skiing centre and the route will largely follow the La Diagonela and ski marathon route to the finish in Silvaplana-Surlej.
There will be a combined classification with La Pachifica (25 km classic) and La Sfida (30 km free style). Participants who complete both races will automatically have their times added together for the skiathlon classification.
La Sfida is the ideal preparation for the Engadin Skimarathon - albeit in the opposite direction.
