Almost 60 kilometers long and requiring 14,389 feet of climbing, PDG is described as "not just a race, it is a three-way human adventure, a journey through history, mountains, sport, friendship and emotion organized by the Swiss Armed Forces." Learn about what it is like to train, register and race the PDG by Tom."
