Length : 170km (4-stages) – D+ : 11,300m – Start time : 06:00 – 5 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 long 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. The stage race is a great format. You can enjoy the views across meadows and mountains in daylight, and socialise and dine with the competitors in afternoons and evenings.

The stage race has a mix of great athletes running for the day’s podium alongside those looking to challenge themselves. The UTMR stage event is an immensely fun way to race the UTMR route. I am sure you will enjoy it.
