Registration is open for the 2022 edition of Ultra Tour Monte Rosa!

Από 31 Μαρ 2022

The 2022 edition of Ultra Tour Monte Rosa will take place from 31st August to 3rd September, presented and organised by endurance athlete Lizzy Hawker. Big mountains, wild trails and a friendly, intimate race experience await the UTMR runners!

The 4 day Stage Race returns to its original route through Italy and Switzerland making a full circle around Monte Rosa, Europe’s largest mountain massif. It’s a chance to enjoy this bold, beautiful, brutal route in daylight, sharing the experience and challenge with friends old and new. Our iconic 100 miler over the same route will be back in 2023.

Following the success of our 2021 Special (covid) Edition routes we also introduce the Mischabel 100 and Mischabel 60 races taking in the best of the wild, high trails along the Höhenweg of the Matterhorn and Saas valleys. Truly stunning routes, Lizzy promises these are some of the best trails she has run in the Alps.

And then… our small gem, the 23 km Grächen Berglauf. In 2021 we sent some elite runners out to marshall the route, they returned blown away by its beauty and variety. Not for the faint hearted it is a true mountain run.

All races start and finish in the delightful mountain village of Grächen in Wallis, Switzerland.

Registration is open now and until 18 July.

So what makes the UTMR different? Instead of requiring running stones for entry we offer stones carved with a Tibetan Buddhist mantra for prizes. It is wild and beautiful, big mountains (4000m summits) abound, the entry fields are small, the challenge is huge. The UTMR race experience, organised personally by Lizzy supported by a team of passionate and dedicated volunteers, is offered simply and from the heart.

Places are limited in keeping with the spirit of the event.
