About Ultraks

The idea behind the concept

Outdoor activities are becoming more and more popular and fill the calendars of sports enthusiasts. The drive to challenge oneself and explore one's own limits motivates people just as much as they do to move in the great outdoors against a beautiful backdrop. Our racing series Ultraks brings the new trend sport Trail-Running to the most beautiful event locations in the Alps. The trails lead along the most spectacular mountain peaks.

Be there and be inspired by the Matterhorn, Mayrhofen and the Engadine!

In addition to their beautiful location, St. Moritz and Pontresina offer an ideal mixture of nature, culture and sport. St. Moritz is one of the most famous holiday resorts in the world: chic, elegant and exclusive. With its extraordinary ambience it lies at 1856m in the middle of the Upper Engadine Lake District. Pontresina is the small but fine neighbouring village with the special flair.

All Ultraks routes start in the middle of Pontresina and lead into the exciting mountain world of the Engadine and the Bernina massif. The Bernina Ultraks lead along the Piz Muragl above Pontresina and into the Rosatsch area around St. Moritz. The Bernina Glacier Marathon takes place against the mighty backdrop of Piz Palü and Piz Bernina.

Thanks to marked and secured routes, even less experienced participants can take part in a run of their own level in the beautiful Pontresina mountains.

The Organisers

The Bernina Ultraks are organised by Outdoor Unlimited Sarl located in Geneva. 

Our team consists of employees from Switzerland and Germany. Our know-how in the sport marketing industry originates from sporting highlights such as the America’s Cup in sailing, the Tour de France, the Ice-Hockey World Cup and other well known sport events.
