Race news: The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® - August 30, 2012

The weather couldn't be tamed and decided to play the main part in the 10th anniversary celebration of The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc®. While the conditions required large scale changes to the race routes and timings, providing the organisers and athletes with some serious challenges, the event yet again captured the ultra-worlds imagination.

Britain's Lizzie Hawker appeared to be the calm amongst the storm, proving that she can handle all eventualities and that a strong mind, possibly above a strong body, and a will to work with nature rather than battle against it will succeed. For the fifth time she arrived in Chamonix as the first woman (and 16th overall) - hats off and a big bow from us at Run247 for yet another inspirational performance.

The changed nature of the course and the severe conditions certainly caused a lot of surprises in the main race though, with a lot of high calibre athletes ailing to reach the finish. As yet many of the stories remain untold, but this race and many a tale from it will have it's place in ultra running legend!

Well done to all who took part and to the very impressive organisation for being prepared to adapt and brave enough to go ahead!
