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
This is a tough and challenging long distance race on high alpine trails. We want you to have fun and enjoy your journey so we need to check that you do have sufficient experience to cope with the demands of the terrain and to look after yourself under all possible conditions.
Selection will be made on a first come first served basis, subject to having the necessary experience (see below). The organisation will reserve a few wild card places to be allocated at its discretion.
NB. the 4-day stage race is ~40% harder than the 2017 3-day stage race – please consider carefully how much experience you have and whether you will be prepared for the challenge!
