Races Names

In 2012, when the Matterhorn Ultraks was launched, races have been named after their distance according to Swisstopo.

The first edition revealed discrepancies, so  we immediately posted information on our website and adjusted the rules accordingly with new distances and elevations.

Recent course changes increased the differences between the reality and the names so we have decided to rename the races as follows, keeping the traditional colour code.

  •  « Active » replaces « 16K »                      green
  • « Mountain » replaces « 30K »                  red
  • « Sky » replaces « 46K »                           blue
  • « Vertical » replaces « VZS »                     purple


We received many criticisms on the changes made to the « 30K » and « 16K » courses, particularly from the shortest distance’s runners tired towards the end and thus slowing the « 30K » runners down after the junction.

Thus, in 2018, the « Active » race will go back to the original course along the river while the « Mountain » race will remain as in 2017.

Start times

Race direction decided to adjust the start times to give more time to some runners but mainly to avoid congestions when the « Mountain » and « Sky » join up between Riffelalp and Furi.

  • 7 : 00 am                          Start « Sky »
  • 8 : 45 am                          Start « Mountain »
  • 10 : 30 am                        Start « Active »

Online Store Special Promotion

To celebrate the opening of the 2018 registrations, our online store offers you special discount between 20 and 50% depending on the products.
