Monterosa Skymarathon

Alagna Valsesia (Piedmont, South face of Monte Rosa)

Europe’s highest race celebrates a big come-back in the Italian Alps, the birthplace of skyrunning where it all began back in 1993. The successful 2019 edition saw 400 world class athletes from 25 countries retrace the original course to the summit of Monte Rosa at 4,554m altitude.

This unique event in true skyrunning style traverses moraine, snow fields and glaciers for 35 kilometres with a gruelling 7,000m ascent and descent. The athletes race in teams of two, roped together for safety.

Yet again the event will attract top international skyrunning stars and ski mountaineering champions to attempt the incredible challenge of beating the long-standing course records set in 1994 by Italians Fabio Meraldi in 4h24’ and Gisella Bendotti in 5h34′.

Join us for the race of the century!
