Italian ultra 100 km race checkpoint

Feedback from runners in 2017

UTMR2

While feedback is sometimes critical (and constructive) there is a lot of happy feedback from many race competitors. Here is a selection from 2017….

Basil Geoghegan

“The UTMR was awesome. Putting together a race on this terrain is impressive. I loved it. I have never run a stage race before. Standing in an Alpine village waiting for the clock to strike 6 and running until it strikes 6 again in another village is a great experience. The camaraderie and banter with other runners was better than my expectations.”

Thomas Naughton

“I loved the event.  I found that because for the stage races you are staying in hotels overnight, you are able to spend a lot more time with your fellow runners than you would if you were doing the ultra. Course is beautiful and I thought organisation was as good as I’ve seen it for an ultra.  Volunteers and staff were brilliant. One of the friendliest races I’ve been at (in terms of people). And one of the most brutal (in terms of terrain)!”

Brett Hochfeld

“I really enjoyed the race beautiful and brutal in equal measure. I loved your personal touch & prayer flags on the summits – it really added a special feel to the race.”

Janine Canham

“Loved having hotels to sleep in, real food for breakfast & dinner and bags carried for us!  Altogether a fantastic event.”

Dane Ryan

“This is my third year at the UTMR and I have really enjoyed being part of the race, it has given me focus, a goal and helped my running enormously. The course is challenging and beautiful and the volunteers friendly and helpful, the whole event has a informal almost family feel to it – which is great.”

Alan Wood

“Fantastic route, really enjoyed the stage race concept. Overall a fantastic event and extremely well organised given the logistical difficulties. I will definitely be recommending the race!”

Nicola Gover

“Great event, really well organised, incredibly well marked and lovely helpful volunteers at all times.”

Aleksandr Vikulin

“The trail is very beautiful. It deserves being run in daylight, so I really loved the staged format.”

Venetia Wingfield

“Still small enough to run in the wild and to make (and find) friends and a good spirit amongst participants and volunteers.”

Lotte Carritt

“Volunteers were always excellent. Always friendly, helpful and encouraging. A real asset to the race.”

Georgia Fane-Hervey

“This was one of the best and most breathtaking adventures I have experienced.”

Sophie Villance

“J’ai adoré cette course, le concept de 4 jours est vraiment génial, les paysages étaient magnifique et l’organisation était top, un tout grand merci!”

Barb Campbell

“The course was everything you promised and much more. I’ve finished many races of different kinds but few of them have felt like such a major accomplishment. it was a wonderful experience – spectacular, adventurous and fun.”

Tobias Hurter

“A great, unforgettable, very hard race. Please keep the personal atmosphere. I’m glad to pay a higher entrance fee to run in such a friendly atmosphere – no need for another overcommercialized mass event.”

Helen Cospolich

“I absolutely love this race!”

John Moreton

“I had one of the best, if not toughest runs of my life and loved it all. Thanks and see you all again.”

Derek Fish

“This route was outstandingly beautiful and extremely tough (which I expected).”

Sarah Gilliam

“A week on and I am still blown away by the amazing experience I had running the 170 km race.”

Beverley Redfern

“I thoroughly enjoyed this challenging race and thought the organisation was very good. All queries prior to the race were answered very promptly. This is a very beautiful and challenging race and I feel privileged to have taken part. I felt very well looked after.”

Spyridon Siakoufis

“I felt that you really love what you are doing and that is what I am looking for on these races. Thank you for the experience.”

Johannes Parkkonen

“It’s one of the most memorable and rewarding races I have done.”

Peter Hjelmström

“Great race in absolutely astounding mountains. Excellent and challenging race course. Although a major large race, the race organizers and volunteers made it a very personal experience.”

Philip Pearson

“Thanks very much for staging such a tremendous event. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The route and scenery would be hard to beat anywhere in the world and I met many lovely people over the four days.”
