This course demands a great deal of effort, even though endurance athletes regard it as “medium” distance. Runners cover a total of 32 km, with ascents and descents of 2,000 vertical metres.
The Matterhorn Ultraks Trail races have taken place every August since 2012. The routes are devised so that non-runners also enjoy an impressive spectacle and can cheer on the competitors.
The Mountain race takes place over a medium-distance course through the glorious mountain landscape around Zermatt. Leading along footpaths, it features the suspension bridge at Furi, 90 m above the Gornerschlucht gorge – an impressive moment for runners.
Please observe the Rules & Regulations of the Matterhorn Ultraks.
No compulsory equipment specifications are set by the organising committee.
Refreshment stations are located along the route.
