Following several participations in multisport races in Switzerland and neighboring France, the idea of organizing one in Vaud sprouted in the minds of a group of friends sharing a passion for sports. Wapiho was born with the firm intention of setting up a multisports race around the Lake Geneva region given that there was only one multisport race in Switzerland (the Jura Raid Adventure, organized by NeuchAventure). During the constitution of Wapiho, we identified a common interest into offering a second event of the same kind in Switzerland to bring the concept of a multisport race to a wider audience.
