History of the Schoolboys’ races
The DHO Schoolboys’ Races started in 1999 to complement the very popular Schoolgirls’ Races, which have been running since 1959. The races were first run in Veysonnaz and have grown every year to the point where they have become just as popular as the girls’ event with over 60 schools represented and 28 school teams competing.
After Veysonnaz, the Schoolboys’ races moved to the DHO’s home village of Wengen. The competition continued to expand the races then moved, to Les Menuires in France, and then Meiringen and we are now back in Wengen once more.
As you will know by now the Schoolboys’ races are run by the DHO and if you would like to see more of the club's activities just follow the menu on the left. The race headquarters will be in the Hotel Belvedere.
I look forward to seeing you all again in January next year
