Description:

A brand-new event, Wildstrubel by UTMB®, allows runners to discover new regions, landscapes and culture Connecting the Swiss cantons of Valais and Bern, Wildstrubel by UTMB® will take runners on a magnificent journey through the northern Alps of Switzerland. Perfectly manicured mountain pastures, breathtaking views of the Valais’ 4,000m peaks, the striking landscapes of the Bernese Oberland mountain range, and the high mountains of the Wildstrubel massif await.

The pinnacle 106km race will include 6,000m of elevation gain on a course designed by Jean-Yves Rey, winner of the 2009 CCC®. Runners will embark on a complete loop of the Wildstrubel massif and the Plaine Morte Glacier, crossing 2 cantons, 2 linguistic regions and 5 internationally renowned destinations: Crans-Montana, Leukerbad, Kandersteg, Adelboden and Lenk. Runners will traverse from one canton to another on a route that takes them via the legendary passes of Gemmi (2,268m) and Rawyl (2,427m), as well as the famous Via Alpina trail between Kandersteg and Lenk.

Wildstrubel by UTMB® will also offer a 50km race from Adelboden, as well as a 23km race from Leukerbad.

The resort of Crans-Montana – which is situated on a high plateau at an altitude of 1,500m and offers views of 40 summits culminating at over 4,000 meters of altitude – will host the first edition of Wildstrubel by UTMB®
