I’m currently spending some time in Chamonix on an Alpine Mountaineering course with UCPA/ Action Outdoors….however I clearly should be thinking about getting my running shoes on- the town is brimming with gnarly looking runners getting ready to take on the North Face Ultra Trail Du Mont Blanc
It’s hard being here and not being caught up in all the atmosphere of the occasion. I had a similar experience last year in Courmayeur in the Aosta Valley for the start of the Tor des Geants . I feel its certainly something I will think of doing one day soon once I’ve got the OMM out of the way! However, if you want to find out more about what’s going on in the minds of these runners right now, then have a read of my article on the Tor Des Geants for Outdoor Fitness Magazine. It’s pretty grueling!
