Pontresina, August 2017 - Chiara M. Battistoni

Great Time in Pontresina! Muragl Lauf is always a stirring opportunity to live the Swiss Alps. Not only a matter of sport, but - firstly - a matter of alpine culture, a way to share the passion for walking with many others, from agonists to volunteers. Muragl Lauf is a unique context for stimulating reflections and sharing of experiences. Pass to Celerina with the support of many supporters, walk the last kilometer on the riverbank, to Samedan and enter the Promulins Arena, possibly preceded, as happened this year, by the winner of Engadiner Sommerlauf (the athlete of Saint Moritz , Daba Temesgen) gives unrepeatable feelings, which speak in the immediate emotional dimension and in the long run on the rational side, transforming into a life experience. In this journey, among woods, streams and pastures, always good ideas arise, immediately tested by the succession of miles. In a bright and cold August morning, the nordic poles marked the rhythm of our shared thoughts, giving us the satisfaction of a challenge (with ourselves) overcome and, at the finish, transform us in enthusiastic athletes, even if ... last!
