Top World Run Races: Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc

Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc

THE NORTH FACE ULTRA TRAIL DU MONT BLANC

France, Italy, Switzerland
Next event: 2016 TBC

Runners pass through three countries and circumnavigating 103 miles around the Mont Blanc Massif. So it’s no surprise that the UTMB is unanimously known as the ‘queen of trail races.’

Taking into account it has a 9600m ascent and a 46-hour cut-off, it’s not for the faint-hearted. However, none of these figures seem to dissuade the thousands of racers who spend upwards of a year completing a number of qualifying ultra marathons to gather the seven points needed for entry.

As you run, you’ll be muttering more expletives than superlatives, but undoubtedly it’ll be worth it!
