Chamonix (France) - "Petite trotte à Léon (PTL)". The PTL® (Petite Trotte à Léon) is one of the events on offer within the framework of the UTMB®. Its conception is original and its unusual specificities distinguish it from other races. The spirit of the PTL® depends upon mental engagement, an adventurous team spirit as well as sporting values and also those of the mountains. This ultra-endurance pedestrian event leads participants on a large tour of Mont-Blanc (300km and 25000m of ascent), taking high routes, without way-markers on the ground, which necessitates the sense of orientation on and off paths. Each year the route is different to allow for the discovery of the richness and diversity of paths in France, Italy and Switzerland within the Mont-Blanc massif. The PTL® is realised in teams of 2 or 3 inseparable and loyally supportive people, without final ranking. The teams move through a rough, technically exacting and mentally and physically demanding mountain environment. With regard to the difficulties inherent to this event, applications are selected from a file of experiences submitted by each established team (see paragraph 2019 Registration). For its 12th year the start of the PTL® is fixed for Monday August 26th 2019 at 08:00, from the Place du Triangle de l'Amitié in Chamonix. The finishers will be judged in the same place, until Sunday September 1st at 16:30, so a maximum time of 152:30. The proposed course around Mont-Blanc, omnipresent, and its prestigious satellites, is this year still innovative and outstanding. You will cross little known areas, often difficult to access and with the most breath-taking views. www.utmbmontblanc.com

Orsières (France) - "Orsières-Champex-Chamonix (OCC)". Last week of August, trailers coming from the whole world will run beyond borders around the Mont Blanc range between France, Italy and Switzerland of the 4 events of the UTMB® featuring distances beyond 100km. The trail effect is contagious and arouses new desires! This great week just lacked one event: a race that starts in Switzerland. On a shorter version, this race will be perfect for fans of medium distances (in the category Trail Ultra Medium (M) between 42km and 69km). Therefore, for the less "ultra" runners wishing to get into the event of the UTMB® will find a race suitable for them to start the adventure. The UTMB® from Chamonix to Chamonix travels through 3 countries, the CCC® takes off from Italy and flies over Switzerland, TDS® opens towards the Beaufortain region and the OOC will now honour the Swiss Valais region. The race will start from Orsières located southwest of the canton in the Val d’Entremont. This valley offers unique landscapes: ultimate peaks on the eastern flanks of the Mont Blanc drawing the franco-swiss frontier, hanging glaciers on polished rocks, fiery torrents… The layout of the OCC goes through that nature, in a charming atmosphere before reaching Champex and the last part just as magical at the UTMB® or the CCC®. www.utmbmontblanc.com

Chamonix (France) - "Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc (UTMB)". Mountain race, with numerous passages in high altitude (>2500m), in difficult weather conditions (night, wind, cold, rain or snow), that needs a very good training, adapted equipment and a real capacity of personal autonomy. It is 6:00pm and we are more or less 2300 people sharing the same dream carefully prepared over many months. Despite the incredible difficulty, we feel serene thanks to the help and comfort offered with by 2000 volunteers who in a spirit of sharing and friendship are ready to partake in the same adventure. We are about to take off on a dream-world adventure. We will be rubbing shoulders with Aiguille de Bionnassay and crossing Col du Bonhomme by moonlight. At sunrise, we will cross Col de la Seigne into Italy and the magical Val Veni overlooked by Noire du Peuterey and the glaciers descending Mont Blanc. Later we will reach the Val Ferret, guarded by Dent du Géant and Grandes Jorasses before finally turning into Switzerland to relish the beautifully protected countryside. We will have to put up with fatigue, to overcome our fears and anxieties. Some participants, having pushed their limits to the extreme, will choose to break off the race keeping intact their hopes to make it from beginning to end at some later date. They will be rewarded for their achievement and their names will be added to the list with everyone else at the end of the race. The others will climb over Bovine and Les Tseppes. Then, with Aiguille Verte in front of them, under the vertical heights of the Drus and with majestic presence of Mont Blanc before them, they will dive down towards the finishing line in the heart of Chamonix. www.utmbmontblanc.com

Bastia, Corsica (France) - "Ultra Corsica". CANCELLED. Corsica is a small continent on its own, with oustanding geographical diversity.
