"Guaranteed to sell out in 2016 just because Lizzy Hawker made something so powerful." - Keith Byrne, 2015 volunteer, Senior Marketing Director, The North Face EMEA.

The 2015 zero edition was so great that we are going to do it every year. And while snow is falling in the Alps we are already preparing for long summer days and inviting mountain trails.


Come and join us in 2016!

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!

ITRA points

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. 


2017 news - the full Tour!

In 2017 the Ultra Tour Monte Rosa will be able to complete the full 150km loop around the Monte Rosa massif, which means that you will also be able to get to know this mountain from both sides! We will keep you informed with developments.


Namaste from the UTMR team!
