The Matterhorn Ultraks «EXTREME» is arguably the most technical race of the series, designed expressly for the best Skyrunners of the world. It blends the pure values of Skyrunning with one of the most spectacular mountain scenery you can find. Designed by the Anthamatten brothers, the course features high altitude – 25% of the course is above 3’000m-, technical sections, glaciers and mountaineering segments.
Compared to all other races of the Matterhorn Ultraks, it starts the opposite way, towards the Hohbalm Plateau before passing by iconic locations such as Unter Gabelhorn, Rothornhütte, Furrghorn, Platthorn and Trift. Then it is a steep and fun downhill towards Zermatt.
