UTMB, Chamonix

A week of ultra trail races around Mont Blanc

Featured in: | Updated

The UTMB® is a trail running event full of superlatives! An essential event for trail-runners from all over the world. Each year, the elite of the trail-running world find themselves in Chamonix alongside thousands of runners keen to participate in one of the event's races.

Growing from only one racing event to a huge week long ever-growing schedule of races, committing to participating in any of these events around Mont-Blanc is a unique and humbling experience. Each participant will have to draw from their strengths and push their mental and physical limits in order to cross the finish line. This extraordinary trip will permit trail-runners to cross valleys and passes allowing them to come into contact with the most beautiful summits, with a unique alpine backdrop.

Numerous volunteers from different countries, plus French, Italian and Swiss communities within the Mont-Blanc range all come together to ensure the success and support of the runners. Thousands of supporters travel to Chamonix to encourage their nearest and dearest, and many more spectators will visit the centrally located runner's village to take in the atmosphere and energy that this unique event creates.
