Registration for the 2021 UTMR “Special Edition”

Registration is extended until 18 July!

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we have had to revise our plans for the 2021 edition of Ultra Tour Monte Rosa. We have been continually reviewing the situation, and of course it remains fluid. But to be fair to our runners, our partners and host communities, and to allow proper organisation of the event we had to make a final decision. For 2021 we have devised a unique “UTMR Special Edition” where all the race routes remain totally within Switzerland. Despite the ongoing uncertainty with the pandemic situation we are confident that with this decision we have the best possible chance of going ahead as planned, and to have an event that offers a great race experience while being safe for all runners, volunteers and host communities.

While deeply disappointing to not make the full loop around Monte Rosa we have worked hard on a magnificent alternative that will take in as much of the original route as possible, plus allow runners to explore the beautiful höhenwege of the Matter and Saas valleys. There’ll be awesome views of Monte Rosa, the Matterhorn and a host of other 4000m mountains. These are some of the best trails we’ve run in Switzerland. And that’s saying something!
