Members of the St Moritz Tobogganing Club took part this weekend in the 100th “Grand National” race as part of the anniversary. The 1,200-metre snaky ice run in the chic Swiss ski resort was created by the competition-loving British and locals in 1885 and continues to attract brave aficionados who undertake some 10,000 rides per year.
