New Trail?

Neuer Helsana-Trail Is there no Helsana Trail in your area? Or do you know a regular running route that could be turned into a Trail? Contact us to find out what the options are, or use the application form for a new Helsana Trail.

Since the first trail was opened in 2003, Helsana has been working with Ryffel Running and Swiss Athletics to expand the network of Trails. Helsana is happy to help you with advice on setting up a Trail and will provide all the signage materials absolutely free. The Trail administrators will be responsible for the Trail and will take care of permits and signage of the Helsana Trail. Trail administrators also receive annual compensation for maintenance of Trails.
