Details

We offer a five-day running tour over the full route of the Tour du Cervin following the high, wild trails around the iconic Matterhorn. See here for further information about this long established long distance footpath.

This is a journey of cultural and linguistic contrasts making an anticlockwise circumnavigation of the Matterhorn and a host of other majestic 4000’ers including the Bishorn, Weisshorn, Zinal Rothorn, Dent d’Hérens, Dent Blanche and Mont Collon . The route takes us through the German speaking Turtmantal into the French speaking Val d’Anniviers and Val d’Herens before the high glacial crossing into the Italian valleys of Valpelline and Valtournenche. A last crossing of the Col du Theodul brings us back into the spectacular Matter valley.

This is ideal training and preparation for the UTMR, both stage race and ultramarathon, as well as other multi-day or ultramarathon races.

This is where Lizzy fell in love with the mountains, come and join her!

Something over 160km with more than 12,000m ascent over four or five running days. You can see a map here! Click on this thumbnail to see full size version.
