Race news: The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® - August 25-31, 2014

In its twelfth year, 7500 runners be on the starting line of one of the The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® races. Coming from the four corners of the world, the participants, whether elite, expert or amateurs, will all share the same adventure. While only one perso can win, everybody runs the same race! Though everybody goes at a different speed, they will experience intense moments of emotion in the midst of an stunning scenery - an exceptional challenge after months of preparation.

In 2014 there are around 317 experts and elites, an exceptional figure which demonstrates that the sporting line-up is of a very high quality!

For the UTMB®, 26 women have a performance index superior to 640. 

119 men with a performance index superior to 750, which means a potential 119 for the top 20.

For performance indexes of more than 600, there are 17 women in the CCC®, 15 in the TDS® and 6 in the OCC who are expected. For these 3 races 67 (CCC®), 41 (TDS®) and 24 (OCC) men with a performance index superior to 715.

Obviously it is the law of sport, numerous other runners, used to running races are outsiders and who could always produce a surprise!

Certainly the elite runners are an important part of the race. But there are 6500 other runners, for whom the race is just as important. For all of them, the same training, the same investment, a dream, an adventure, emotions and great pleasure. The The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® races have this specificity. The best elite runners in the world who take with them in their stride more than 6500 runners...
For them, victory is to participate and above all to cross the finish line!
