Some twenty employees at the Siegfried Evionnaz site participated in the 32nd Tour du Chablais from 4 April to 9 May 2018. The popular run is carried out every year across a period of six weeks. It provides the opportunity to cross meadows and conquer mountains while discovering different areas of the Chablais region located in the Swiss Cantons of Valais and Vaud. 

The climate during the period of the Tour was capricious, and the runners consequently expended great amounts of physical strength which brought them to their limits. Four employees from Siegfried Evionnaz, namely Caroline Schütz, Rémy De Sousa, Laurent Nellen and Yvan Terrettaz, participated in the entire run and braved the elements across all of the segments. They deserve our recognition and respect for their commitment and extraordinary performance.

We would like to also congratulate the other Siegfried Evionnaz runners who ran one or more segments. We look forward to meeting up again during the run next year.
