Lizzy says, "This is where I used to do my hard training, and this route is the race I would have loved to run."
A stage race or 1-day ultra - different ability friends can finish together!
Following the beautiful Tour de Monte Rosa, a long-distance trail encircling the second highest mountain in the Alps.
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 I’ve created it for you to enjoy. As a one-stage race it is a serious challenge – brutal, beautiful and brilliant – and in stages, it’s a lot of fun. Come and try it!
