What is special about UTMR?
A "big race experience with a welcoming and intimate atmosphere", said one 2015 participant.
"Beautiful, brutal, brilliant. Feel privileged to have been able to take part in something so special", said another.
"Lizzy, you and your crew were amazing in all their efforts pulling together all of the details for UTMR. Everything felt perfectly dialed from a runner's point of view. A treat to feel your presence on those trails!" said Krissy Moehl, 2 time UTMB champion.
Magnificent trails, lofty (4000m) summits, distinctive cultures, a challenging mountain journey - come and find out for yourself!
The 2016 race routes have been submitted to the International Trail Running Association for evaluation. Completion of the either of the UTMR races will award you ITRA points. These can be helpful in assessing ability and experience for entry into other races and are a requirement for some. We will give you details about certification and the number of ITRA points as soon as evaluation is complete.
