The course was challenging but the scenery was even more rewarding. What I loved most was the intimacy of UTMR, the opportunity to meet new people, and share the trails with them for three days with Monte Rosa as the backdrop , it doesn’t get much better. Thanks Lizzy, Rich and team, what an experience. Ruth Croft, 2nd Female 2016 Stage Race
