Ultra Trail week

20130830-130829.jpg

It’s ultra trail week in Chamonix and Courmayeur this week, so the towns and villages are swamped with hundreds of runners clad in perhaps to much (little?) Lycra and compression socks, preparing for their races in one of the events of the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc. On Wednesday the TDS (Sur les Traces des Ducs de Savoie) runners raced from Courmayeur via Bourg St Maurice to Chamonix. Today the CCC (Courmayeur Champex Chamonix) run is underway, and this evening the full UTMB race around Mont Blanc starts. Kingsley from our UIMLA guiding team finished the TDS, to add to his previous tally of the CCC and UTMB, and you can view his race video here.
