With the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we realise that runners and volunteers may have concerns about the upcoming UTMR races in September given the cancellation of many sporting events throughout Europe.
We wish to reassure you that we have no plans to cancel or reschedule the UTMR races at the present time.
We are monitoring and following the guidelines issued by the Swiss and Italian authorities for the districts of the race and the wider region in general. Currently there are a range of preventative actions in place in the region and we trust that they will be effective in time and removed in due course. We hope that there will be no restrictions on events or travel by September.
As race organisers, your safety and health is our primary concern. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward seeing you in September!
The 2020 Ultra Tour Monte Rosa races are scheduled from 2-5 September 2020 and will take place as planned unless we notify participants by email to the contrary.
We are bound by the regulations of Switzerland and Italy for the region of the race. Participants may also be subject to travel restrictions of their own country of residence as well as those imposed by Switzerland and Italy.
In case the situation regarding the outbreak of coronavirus in Europe has not improved by July we will take advice in consultation with the local municipalities whether to cancel the events or to introduce precautionary measures, subject to any national or local regulations in place. A decision will be made by 31 July and communicated to all registered runners by email and SMS in case of cancellation.
In case of a positive decision by 31 July it is possible that a later change in national or local regulations could still force a cancellation. The following rules apply.
