Race Regulations

It is great if you have friends and family who might be traveling with you in support!

To be fair to all runners please note support from friends and family is allowed at designated checkpoints only and so long as it doesn’t interfere with the operation of the checkpoint.

  • No support is allowed between checkpoints.
  • No muling or pacing is allowed.

Stage Race

We have very limited accommodation in each race village. Please email info@ultratourmonterosa.com if you have a supporter wishing to accompany you. We may be able to offer a few places with an accommodation/transport package for volunteer supporters.

For all other supporters there is plentiful accommodation within the village (Zermatt) or within 5-10 km driving distance (Gressoney & Macugnaga). If you have your own transport then this is easy. If you don’t have transport we recommend basing yourself in Grächen and using the easy public transport service (www.sbb.ch/en) to reach Zermatt & Saas Fee checkpoints.

Closing Celebration in Grächen

A ticket for the closing celebration / prize-giving meal in Grächen on Saturday 4 September is included in each runner’s registration fee. Please use this form if you need additional tickets for your supporters. Booking will be available after 1 April 2021. Thank you!

Book additional meal tickets for your supporters here!   

Car sharing

If your supporter wishes to share a car with others it is easiest to ask in our facebook group “Friends of Ultra Tour Monte Rosa“.

Suggested driving routes

UTMR is definitely a foot race and the driving routes between checkpoints are long and difficult. Here is some information about driving routes and times to help your supporters.
