The Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc is a single stage mountain ultra marathon through seven valleys, over 71 glaciers and 400 summits; a complete tour of the Mont-Blanc Massif which passes through 3 countries: France, Switzerland and Italy.
The Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc is actually formed of five different races under the single UTMB brand: PTL, TDS, OCC, CCC, UTMB.
The CCC® is considered by many runners to be "the little one". Far from being so little, this race constitutes one of the most difficult challenges in ultra-trail, not to be taken lightly.
Starting in the centre of Courmayeur Friday, 29 Aug 2014 at 9:00.
