Monte Rosa SkyMarathon 2022

Europe’s highest race celebrates a big come-back in the Italian Alps

25 June 2022
The 4th edition of Monte Rosa SkyMarathon takes place on 2022, June 25.

Europe’s highest race celebrates a big come-back in the Italian Alps, the birthplace of skyrunning where it all began back in 1992. The successful 2021 edition saw 558 world class athletes from 36 countries retrace the original course to the summit of Monte Rosa at 4,554 m altitude.

This unique event in true skyrunning style traverses moraine, snow fields and glaciers for 35 kilometres with a gruelling 7,000 m 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′.
