UTMB® FOR THE PLANET: UNITE AND SUPPORT THROUGH YOUR OWN NEW DIGITAL EVENT!

Από 23 Ιουν 2020

Following the cancellation of the 2020 edition of UTMB® Mont Blanc due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased to announce the launch of UTMB® for the Planet; a digital sporting event to unite the community. For this new adventure, we bring you 4 virtual races based on the main distances of the event; UTMB® Virtual 50, UTMB® Virtual 100, UTMB® Virtual 170 and UTMB® Virtual 240. Entry into the UTMB® for the Planet virtual races is free, and all participants are invited to donate the amount of their choice when they register to support WWF France projects. Partners since 2019, UTMB® Mont-Blanc and WWF France both work to harmonize trail running activities with environmental issues, by developing and promoting alternative solutions for the entire trail running industry in terms of food, transport, waste minimization and public awareness.

 

 

The UTMB® for the Planet virtual races will be officially launched on July 20th and will be accessible to all runners from around the world. In addition to the virtual distances, for those who can travel, it will also be possible to participate on the trails of the Pays du Mont-Blanc which will be free to access throughout the summer. From 27th-30th August, the territories of Mont Blanc will come together to offer runners a special welcome, in compliance with the health regulations**.

 

 

The virtual races will be live from July 20th to August 30th and will be hosted on a new UTMB® for the Planet digital platform, integrating a real-time ranking. To encourage the greatest number of runners to take part, participants will be able to complete their chosen distance over several runs or in one go. The classification will also take into account the kilometre-effort* for people who cannot integrate elevation gain in their run.

 

In addition to the virtual races, original and exclusive challenges will be organised with our partners and will be available on the digital platform. These challenges will offer different sporting formats such as night races, team events or challenges based on elevation.

 

We look forward to sharing this new experience with you!

 

Take care and see you on July 20th,

UTMB® Group team

 

* Kilometre-effort: for any gain of 100m in elevation, one kilometre is added to the distance of the route.
** More details to follow.
