From 28th of August to the 3rdof September 2017, UTMB, with the presence of his Majesty the Mont Blanc.

Courmayeur dresses up in party, between dances, banners and folk music. This is happening on the occasion of the Ultra-Trail of the Mont Blanc, a mountain racing competition that sees world-wide trailer as a main character, considered as real heroes who will face a tough competition on the Mont Blanc 's "north face".

Mountain test that involves numerous altitude passes, up to more than 2500 meters, under conditions that may be very difficult(night, wind, cold, rain or snow) and require a good workout, a suitable material and a real capacity of personal autonomy. Prove that it will cost them so much effort and they will be overcoming themselves. Some will come to the limit of fatigue till the end and some will leave the race and will repeat the next time.

More than 2300 people will face the same common dream, in less than 2 days, after months of physical and mental preparation. 2000are the volunteers who will accompany trailers along the route to support and sustain them till the end with an absolute spirit of solidarity and friendship!

It will be Sunday to bring everyone together to celebrate the winners, applaud the latest arrival even stronger. A moment when runners and volunteers will be reunited to remember the moments of joys, sufferings and emotions.

The route will include the following stages: from the French side, will pass to the Aiguille de Bionnassay, the Col du Bonhomme, the Col de la Seigne. In the Italian side will follow, from the magical Val Veny dominated by the Noire de Peuterey and Mont Blanc glaciers, the Val Ferret, dominated by the Giant Dagger and Grandes Jorasses; then swing into Switzerland and find yourself in a scrupulously cured natural setting.

A further course will be the main destination of the Bovine and Les Tseppes passes in front of the Aiguille Verte, the Drus Vertical and the majestic Mont Blanc with a finish line in the heart of Chamonix.
