UTMB weekend

This weekend saw thousands of trail runners competing in the annual Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc races. The main race mainly follows the Tour du Mont Blanc hike, that normally takes people between a week and ten days to complete. The runners complete it in under 46 hours of continuous running. The route this year was 170km long, with a huge 9700m of vertical height gain, which is over twice the height of Everest from Base Camp. In this photo is Kingsley from our Chamonix team, having just finished the race on Sunday. Fortunately for him, there’s no TMB trekking guiding for him this week! Congratulations to him, and to all the runners who finished the race.
