UTMB®, the ultimate race!
The Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® is the ultimate race that any fan of the discipline wants to do at least once in their life. The event attracts 10 000 participants, representing more than 88 nations over 5 races. The famous and hardest is the UTMB®: its route takes runners around Mont Blanc via France, Italy and Switzerland over a distance of 170 kilometers with more than 10,000 meters of elevation gain, and which must be run in less than 43 hours.
Partner of the UTMB® since 2004, trail running is in our blood!
Every year we are on the event through a booth, some animations but also our athletes.
They will be 14 Julbo runners to try the UTMB® adventure this year.
