About Ultraks

The idea behind the concept

Outdoor activities are gaining more and more interest and play an important role in the year-long planning of the sports enthusiasts. The trend is fostered by people’s search for the original and genuine and a desire to challenge oneself. Outdoor enthusiasts desire the competition amidst unspoilt and free nature and spectacular scenery as host venue. The race series Ultraks takes trail-running in summer to the most attractive summits in the European Alps and invites amateurs and pros alike to compete in front of the most breathtaking backdrops.

Apart form the beautiful location, St. Moritz and Prontresina have a lot more to offer: a perfect mix of nature, culture and sport. St. Moritz is known to be one of the world’s most elegant, exclusive and sophisticated holiday destinations. Located in the midst of Upper Engadin lake region at 1856m, the town offers its visitors an exceptional ambience. Pontresina on the other hand, is the small, but very appealing neighbouring town with its special traditional flair.

All three Ultraks categories, the “Pitschen”, “Media” and “Grand” course, start off in the centre of Pontresina and lead along two course loops in the enthralling Engadin mountain region. The Engadin St. Moritz Ultraks leads along the Piz Muragl situated above Pontresina as well as into the Rosatsch region surrounding St. Moritz. The “Media” and “Grand” courses will take place in front of the mighty backdrop of the Piz Surlej and of the Piz Corvatsch.

Due the detailed markings and safety regulations along the courses, even less experienced participants will have the chance to complete the race in the beautiful Pontresina mountain region.

Furthermore, Engadin St. Moritz Ultraks offer all spectators and supporters a real event highlight: live commentary in the start and finish area as well as fun and entertainment all race long. Supporters can utilise the well-connected Engadin mountain cable-car in order to experience the entire race, get to the key sections of the course or cheer their favourite competitors from start to finish.

Engadin St. Moritz Ultraks aims to set another milestone in trailrunning history. After successfully hosting the Matterhorn Ultraks events, it is time to take over the Eastern Alps as well.
