20 years with mountain races

I learned that this mountain race, which probably is more know from the two towns of Sierre and Zinal, which the race connects, appeared to be a source of inspiration for the coming summer holidays in the Alps, mainly in Valais. In 1992 I participated in three races during my holiday in Switzerland: first Tour du Lac around Lake St.Moritz and then Täschalplauf from Täsch up to Täschalp. And finally a repetition of Sierre-Zinal. For me it had become quite natural that I should go on my daily run even though I was in alpine terrain, so when I in the summer of 1993 returned to Valais I naturally also should participate in the race from Thyon to Dixence.
