Teaser 80km du Mont-Blanc from MOUSS PRODUCTION on Vimeo.
Hi there all you crazy trailheads, just a short note to infom you that I just registered for a new exciting race in Chamonix: 80km du Mont Blanc on Friday 28 June 2013 (start 4am).
It's a 50-mile loop course Chamonix-Chamonix, with 6,000 meters (19,685ft) cumulative vertical up, and naturally the same down. It looks like a tough but scenic course to me. Definitely doable within the allowed 24 hours though. The weather will be a mystery as always, but it could possibly be warmer and sunnier than UTMB 2012 :)
Highest points along the route are:
- Bel Lachat (2,276m)
- Brevent (2,525m)
- Col du Corbeau (2,602m)
- Col de la Terrasse (2,643m)
- Signal (2,200m)
- Aiguille du Plan (2,200m).
It's organized by the same people who have put on Mont Blanc Marathon for years, so they should know what they are doing.
Trail Valley is a beautiful place, as you can see from the video. Hope to see you there!
