Traditional cross-country skiing event in Lenzerheide

On Sunday, 13 January 2019, the traditional Planoiras cross-country race will take place for the 34th time in the Lenzerheide holiday region. Measure yourself over 25 fantastic and interesting kilometres (or 12.5 km at the Planoirino) through the snow-covered winter landscape from the Biathlon Arena in Lantsch/Lenz via Lenzerheide and Valbella to Parpan and back to Lenzerheide with around 600 participants.

Of course, there will also be the opportunity to socialise at the subsequent Pasta Party in the local school gym hall Lenzerheide in the immediate vicinity of the finish line. Already on Saturday, 12 January 2019, the young athletes will start for the 22nd Planoiras Youth Run and the athletes of Special Olympics for the 3rd Heja Heja Special Olympics Snowshoe and Cross-Country Race.
