Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc®

Competitive sport

Unique in its kind, this event crosses 3 countries on foot (France, Italy and Switzerland), covers 166 kilometres and 9,400 metres climb in one fell swoop.

The Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® invites you to live an adventure out of the ordinary by participating to one of the 5 races that we offer :

UTMB® [Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc®] the original and queen of the races
Since the first year, it has been called “the race of all the superlatives” A complete tour of the Mont Blanc Massif, passing through 3 countries: France, Switzerland and Italy, the race that every runner should finish at least once in their life.
Le tour of Mont-Blanc, starting from Chamonix, with 168km, 9,600 metres of positive height gain, and in semi autonomy.
- 2300 runners maximum - maximum race time: 46 hours - estimated time for the first finishers is 20 hours

CCC® [Courmayeur-Champex-Chamonix] - the way in
Created in 2006, it has become as popular as its big sister. The CCC® is considered by many runners to be "the little one" nevertheless it too, constitutes one of the most difficult challenges in ultra - trail. Do not take the CCC® lightly; more than one runner has "burned" their thighs there.
A semi-tour of Mont-Blanc, starting from Courmayeur with 101km, 6,100 metres of positive height gain and in semi-autonomy.
- 1900 runners maximum - maximun race time: 26 hours - estimated time for the first finishers is12 hours

TDS® [sur les Traces des Ducs de Savoie] - the wild alternative
Wilder and more technical than the UTMB® and the CCC®, in the heart of the Aosta valley and the two Savoie, this demanding race offers a new vision of the tour of Mont Blanc and the Beaufortain country. The route will allow the discovery of the col de la Youlaz (2,661m) above Courmayeur, the "passage du Curé" or the sublime view of the massif of Mont Blanc from the col de la Gitte in the heart of Beaufortain.
A semi-tour of Mont-Blanc starting from Courmayeur with 119km, 7,250 metres of positive height gain and in semi-autonomy.
- 1600 runners maximum - maximum race time : 33 hours - estimated time for the first finishers is 14 hours

PTL® [la Petite Trotte à Léon] - A great team adventure
A hallucinatory and non competitive event! A "grand" tour of Mont Blanc adding high passes, often higher than 2,500 metres and with some delicate passages. If you like solitude, solidarity and total adventure, that is the reason for trying it once.
- an event without final positions and in complete autonomy, to be realised by teams of 3 (or 2) inseparable runners.
- the route is different each year, not way marked but simply mapped (GPS waypoints are provided)
- around 300km and 28,000 metres of positive height gain - maximum authorized time: 141 hours

OCC [Orsières-Champex-Chamonix] - The little Swiss sister
New 2014! The race will start from Orsières located southwest of the canton in the Val d’Entremont. This valley offers unique landscapes: ultimate peaks on the eastern flanks of the Mont Blanc drawing the franco-swiss frontier, hanging glaciers on polished rocks, fiery torrents… The layout of the OCC goes through that nature, in a charming atmosphere before reaching Champex and the last part just as magical at the UTMB® or the CCC®.
- 1000 runners maximum
