The Ultratrail du Mont Blanc

Every year thousands of fit, completely insane people gather in Chamonix town centre to set off on the Ultratrail du Mont Blanc..

Basically they run the Tour du Mont Blanc in one go.  
All 166 kilometres of it. 
9600 metres of altitude change!

It takes a normal person 11 days to complete this tour in a reasonable hiking fashion…

The fastest person this year,  Kilian Jornet, did it in 16 hours and 3 minutes.

Keep on running!

Keep on running!

anyway… watching all this exercise made us quite hungry. 
…so we passed the time watching the runners and enjoying a relaxing meal at the Chevanne
