Ultra Tour Monte Rosa
The Ultra Tour Monte Rosa is an incredible mountain route around Monte Rosa, organised by a small and independent team who are passionate about the mountains and proud of it. We try to bring you something different, a big race experience but within an intimate setting. We love this route and these mountains and simply want to share them with you and offer you an opportunity to explore both this incredible landscape and yourself.
And together we are UTMR! You, our runners, bring your commitment, your enthusiasm, your effort; our passionate and dedicated volunteer team who make the impossible possible; our host communities, and us (the organisation)!
We look forward to welcoming you in September 2023 to share a “bold, beautiful, brutal” race experience in the heart of the Alps. See you soon in Grächen!
Accessibility: all our 2023 race routes will start and finish in Grächen. This delightful small village at the entrance to the Zermatt Valley in the Swiss Alps is very easily reached by public transport from Geneva and Zurich airports. We will give you all the travel details after registration.
Training: throughout the summer months we will also have a series of training camps/days on the various race routes as well as some other exciting multi-day tours. We will finalise the programme in early January. Please sign up to our mailing list if you’d like to be kept informed. These tours are great training, a perfect opportunity to start to adapt to the terrain you will race on. But open to everyone, they are also simply a chance to enjoy a mountain adventure without the pressure of a race situation and in the company of a small group of like-minded new friends. Join us!
Our race routes bring you close to a host of 4000m summits, these are some of the best alpine trails we know, and that’s saying something.
