  • Everything felt perfectly dialled from a runner’s point of view. A treat to feel Lizzy’s presence on those trails!

    I just had the pleasure of spending three amazing days volunteering at the zero edition of UTMR. Stage racing is the most awesome way for trail runners to enjoy three days of raw trails and spend quality time with fellow trailers. Lizzy Hawker has just delivered a new event that was breathtaking in its beauty.

    Congratulations and thank you to all! Your organisation, the race, the team and the atmosphere were awesome! It was a nice and friendly three days, with a lot of sharing and exchanges with beautiful people!

About the race

While I was running these trails around Monte Rosa, my training ground for the UTMB, I thought “this is the race I would really like to run”. It didn’t exist so we’ve created it for you to enjoy. As a one-stage race it is a serious challenge – bold, brutal and beautiful – and in stages, it’s a lot of fun. Come and try it!
