UTMB®: an imminent start for the world’s toughest trail race
The North Face® Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc® is just around the corner. The event, which hosts four of the world’s wildest and most extreme trail running races, will take place from August 26 to September 1, 2013. For the 11th time in as many years, runners will circle the Mont-Blanc range and cross through the three countries it lies in: Switzerland, Italy, and France. People experience a real connection with the mountains during such trying races. This feeling will be even more enhanced with the establishment of a dedicated environmental services team to ensure a leave-no-trace approach to the protected natural spaces where the races take place. So venture to the Chamonix Valley to cheer on the best trail runners on the planet.
