Thank you very much for your offer to volunteer for the 2021 Ultra Tour Monte Rosa. Five races, two countries, 8 different villages, 14 checkpoints, a running route of 100 miles and a driving route of over 1000 km! It’s complicated and we need your help to make it happen, so thank you! We have a variety of roles that need to be filled in different locations around the race route. Please do complete this form so that we can work out where and how we can best use your help! Thank you!
The 2021 races take place from Wednesday 1 September to Saturday 4 September 2021. We need help for all or part of the period between Sunday 29 August and Sunday 5 September. Let us know what you can offer!
Please note: for 2021 we are working on the planning for our original route around Monte Rosa and a ‘special’ all swiss route in case the Covid restrictions mean it isn’t possible to take a race across the Swiss/Italian border. The decision will be made on 1 July (give or take a few days).
- General volunteers: if you are happy to stay at any location and help for the duration (or part) of the race then this is you! If you are able to get yourself to Grächen (or another of our race locations) we provide simple accommodation & food during the race, and travel if we need you to go to another checkpoint location. Unfortunately we can’t provide travel to Grächen. We need help for all or part of the period between Sunday 29 August and Sunday 5 September. Let us know what you can offer!
- Local volunteers: if you are living or staying near one of our race locations and can offer some help at the time the race passes through we are very grateful! The locations are Zermatt, Cervinia, Val d’Ayas, Gressoney, Alagna, Macugnaga, Saas Fee. Let us know which you are near and we can tell you the relevant checkpoint timings. We also need some help with marking pre-race and demarking after the race!
- Stage race volunteers: we have a few places reserved for family or friends of stage race participants who would like to accompany them & are willing to volunteer for us. Here we need you to book our supporter accommodation package and we’ll make sure you share with your friends/family. We will supply transport (if you don’t have your own) between the race locations. We understand your primary concern is to support your runner but we will need you to commit to give us a certain amount of time. For 2021 these places are very limited.
To all of our team we offer you a pre-event volunteers dinner (in certain locations only, a special UTMR team t-shirt & headwear, priority entry to future UTMR races, and of course a challenging & fun experience as part of the UTMR team. Thank you for your offer of help!
