1K Vertical Davos

The event is canceled!

1K Vertical Davos 2017 is canceled!

Unfortunately, also in 2017 the 1K Vertical Davos will not take place.

We did not find the time and people to be able to organize the race with the same quality and commitment to our participants

We can't be certain if the race will be back in 2018, however, if you would be interested in helping next year or if you do have suggestions

Please don't hesitate to contact us.
