On is proud to be title sponsor of the "Ultra Tour Monte Rosa" (UTMR). Said to be one of the most beautiful ultra marathons in the world, the trail winds through the Swiss and Italian Alps, encircling one of the biggest mountain massifs in Europe.
“This is the race I always wanted to race” says trail running legend Lizzy Hawker: 5 time winner of the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc and the creator of the UTMR. "While I was running the trails around Monte Rosa, my training ground for the UTMB, I thought this is race I wanted to run. Of course, it didn't exist, so the dream trail runner's race was created.
As a one-stage race it is a serious challenge: bold, brutal and beautiful and in 4 stages, it’s a lot fun. With three race options:4-day stage race,100km Ultra 3Passes or the full 170km Ultra Tour - the UTMR has somethingto offer every trail runner.
Ruth Croft, runner up in the 2016 stage race, said, “The course was challenging - but the scenery was worth every step. What I loved most about the UTMR compared to other events was the intimacy it fostered and the opportunity it offered to meet new and passionate people.”
