Your challenge around the BergArena of Unterwalden

Titlis and passes on its length of 80.3 kilometers and 5000 meters of ascent deep blue mountain lakes, wild rock faces and breath-taking views into the high peaks of the Berner Alpen and the beautiful valleys beneath before it ends at the peak of Mt. Pilatus. Along with the Mountainman ULTRA there will be held the Marathon distance from Giswil, Brosmatt the Mountainman MARATHON and the Halfmarathon distance from Langis the Mountainman HALBMARATHON.
The Mountainman of records

The steepest cogwheel railway in the world will take you back down from the mountain after the finishing line: the Pilatus-Bahn ! 30 km of the route are located in the biggest moorlands of Switzerland: the Glaubenberg !
