The Cha Cha Cha Ultra Trail series is a race for runners created by runners.

An annual event held in Verbier and the surrounding areas during September. Arguably one of the most scenic trail events in Europe. Offering 4 distances through the heart of the alps there is a race for all abilities; 82km, 43km, 21km & 10km. Designed in lockdown with the idea of creating something positive for local runners in the community to train for. The race was a sell out success in 2020, executed with precision and from then has grown organically. We invite all running communities to join us for a trail race like no other. Think punchy climbs, epic scenery, community spirit and an incredible atmosphere.

Cha Cha Cha Ultra 82km, 5900m – 11.09.21
The longest and toughest course of the series, aimed at seasoned athletes. The course, starting and finishing in Le Châble, has been designed with personal challenge in mind, taking you to your limits whilst exploring the incredible local trails. You will be rewarded with challenging climbs and dramatic scenery. This is designed to be self selecting. You must be physically and mentally ready for the challenge!

Cha Cha Cha 21km, 1200m – 11.09.21
Half marathon distance, open to all levels and ages, starting in Le Châble and finishing at the stunning Champex Lac. This fast and undulating course travels along the valley and under the famous Catogne mountain. The technical forest section offers a steep, challenging climb up above the lake before gently descending to the finish line. A community inspired race with stunning views along the course and the option of a lake swim at the end!

Cha Cha Cha 43km, 2950m – 12.09.21
Marathon distance and the 2nd longest course of the series, this is aimed at intermediate-experienced trail runners. Starting and finishing in Le Châble the route travels up both sides of the Verbier valley. A challenging course showcasing the local Val de Bagnes trails including some steep, technical climbs, undulating & scenic ridgeline sections but also some fast paced descents.

Cha Cha Cha 10km, 770m – 19.09.21
A fantastic introduction to trail racing, around the Verbier trails. This community inspired race is inclusive and encourages all ages and abilities onto the trails.
