« VERTINIGHT » Race
Length : 6.3 km
D+ : 1’000 m | D- : 20 m
Start Time : On Friday at 8:30 p.m.
New for 2022 is the "VERTINIGHT", a 6.3 km vertical kilometre to Schwarzsee.
Why the "VERTINIGHT"?
First and foremost because in 2022, for the tenth time since 2013, the best skyrunners in the world will meet at the foot of the Matterhorn for an event full of novelties and innovations.
But also because, for those who remember, the Matterhorn Ultraks has taken over from the Matterhornlauf, which for 30 years brought runners from Zermatt to Schwarzsee.
Finally, by giving the start of this race at night, the organisers are adding the charm of running by the light of the "headlamps", which can be seen from the village of Zermatt.
This "VERTINIGHT" will replace the traditional "VERTICAL" Zermatt Sunnegga in 2022.
