The Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® invites you to live an extraordinary adventure by participating in one of the 7 events offered.
The Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® - the "queen" and original race : 171 km & 10 300 m D + - 2 300 runners !
"Mountain event, with many passages in altitude (> 2500m), in climatic conditions which can be very difficult (night, wind, cold, rain or snow), requiring a very good training, an adapted equipment and a real capacity of personal autonomy. It is 6:00 pm and we are more than 2300 people sharing the same dream: to do the tour of the Mont-Blanc in less than two days. Each of us has been preparing carefully for many months.
Despite the enormity of the event, we are serene because we know that nearly 2000 volunteers are participating in the same adventure, ready to offer their passion and help in a spirit of sharing and friendship. We are going to live a timeless adventure!
In the moonlight, we will rub the Aiguille de Bionnassay and cross the Col du Bonhomme. At sunrise, we will cross the Col de la Seigne and enter the magic of the Val Veni dominated by the Noire de Peuterey and the glaciers that descend from Mont Blanc. Then comes the Val Ferret, guarded by the Dent du Géant and the Grandes Jorasses before finally passing into Switzerland and savoring its carefully preserved environment. We will have to endure the fatigue, overcome our doubts and anxieties. Some of us, having pushed our limits to the extreme, will prefer to stop while keeping the hope to finish the complete tour next time. The others will cross Bovine and Tseppes. Then, facing the Aiguille Verte, the vertical Drus and the majesty of the Mont Blanc, they will plunge down to the finish in the heart of Chamonix.
Whatever happens, we will all meet again on Sunday afternoon to celebrate the winners, to applaud even more the last arrivals and to share, runners and volunteers together, our joys, our sufferings and our emotions.
