This weekend saw Chamonix invaded by thousands of trail runners from all over the world, who were there to participate in what has grown to be the most popular mountain ultra marathon event in the world; the North Face Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc. There are four routes ranging from 100 to 240km, that circumnavigate the Mont Blanc. This year was plagued by bad weather, fog, storms and heavy rains, and many people abandonned, and two races were halted by the weather. Kingsley from our Chamonix guiding team completed the CCC race from Courmayeur (Italy) to Champex (Switzerland) and Chamonix (France). He finished a very respectable 361st out of 2000.
