Ultra Tour Monte Rosa - 3 Passes, 100km
Location: Gressoney-la-Trinité to Grächen
Starting in the beautiful village of Gressoney-la-Trinité, part of the Aosta Valley region of northwestern Italy. You have 100km (62miles) of stunning mountain running to look forward to.
Surrounded by views of mountains and meadows, Monte Rosa has some of the quietest trails offering majestic, wild spaces to explore. After your first challenge of the 1000m climb up to the Colle Salza (2882m), take a moment to enjoy your reward of superb views onto the glaciers of Monte Rosa and the Gabiet valley. A short descent brings you on to the main route of UTMR.
It’s a tough trail, high and technical in many places with over 6000m of ascent, so prior mountain running experience is needed. Brutal, beautiful, yet brilliant! It is by far one of the most spectacular places to run and a long-time favourite of race organiser, Lizzy Hawker.
Come and try it and enjoy a beautiful Monte Rosa mountain running experience!
