Elite athlete programme

An opportunity to be part of the UTMR experience

This is the race that I wanted to run. The race didn’t exist so we (Lizzy and friends) created it. I think it’s at least 20-30% harder than UTMB – a bold, brutal and beautiful route!”

A big race experience with an intimate and welcoming atmosphere…

That seems to the be a common view of the Ultra Tour Monte Rosa from participants. In a slightly more remote part of the Alps, we have wild mountain trails and fewer participants than other “big” mountain ultras.

Come and see what it’s all about! We are developing a programme of support for elite athletes and ambassadors. We will offer a number of elite & media places depending on your race potential or media reach. If you are keen to be part of the UTMR experience please register your interest by completing the form below. We will assess all applications and offer places by 15 May.

  • We love to support talent. If you think you have what it takes to be at the top of the field (and podium) in one of the UTMR events, we’d love to hear from you. We suggest an ITRA Performance index above 750 for men, and 650 for women.
  • If you are an enthusiastic and influential member of the trail running community and can help spread the word about how great the UTMR experience is, please get in touch and tell us about yourself.

The UTMR has more climb, more technical terrain, more altitude, more glacier crossings and more beauty than UTMB. I’ll definitely be back.”
