Length/Duration: 170 km
Location: Monte Rosa

The 2018 edition will Have a 170k Ultra and a 100k ultra. UTMR is also happy to announce that there will be a 4-stage 170k race as well for this edition.


Length : 170 km - D+ : 11,300m - Start time : 04:00 - Thursday 6th September 2018 - Grächen

Wild spaces, numerous 4000m mountains in every direction, and non-busy trails - this is where I chose to train for UTMB and other races. This is the format I trained in - going around Monte Rosa in two long back-to-back days, staying with my friends in villages and refugios along the way. It's a tough trail, high and technical in many places - and prior mountain running experiences is needed - but so beautiful.

While I was running these trails I thought "this is the race I would really like to run". It didn't exist so we have created it for you to enjoy. The full route is tougher than UTMB. As a one-stage race it is a serious challenge - brutal, beautiful and brilliant. Come and try it! - Lizzy Hawker
