2017 Ultra information

Information about the 116km Ultra route, 2017

Length : 116km – D+ : 8,090m – Start time : 06:00 – Friday 8th September – Cervinia

Wild spaces, numerous 4000m mountains in every direction, and non-busy trails – this is where I chose to train for UTMB and other races. This is the format I trained in – going around Monte Rosa in two long back-to-back days, staying with my friends in villages and refugios along the way. It’s a tough trail, high and technical in many places – and prior mountain running experiences is needed – but so beautiful.

While I was running these trails I thought “this is the race I would really like to run”. It didn’t exist so we have created it for you to enjoy. The full route (from 2017) is tougher than UTMB. As a one-stage race it is a serious challenge – brutal, beautiful and brilliant. Come and try it!
