Mountain test, with many passages in altitude (> 2500m), in climatic conditions that can be very difficult, requiring a very good training, adapted equipment and a real capacity personal autonomy.

It is 18:00 and we are more than 2300 to share the same dream: go around Mont Blanc in less than two days. Each of us has carefully prepared for many months. Despite the excessiveness of the event, we are calm because we know that nearly 2000 volunteers are involved in the same adventure, ready to offer their help and comfort with passion in a spirit of sharing and friendship. We will live an adventure out of time! In the moonlight, we will rub the Aiguille de Bionnassay and cross the Col du Bonhomme. At sunrise, we will pass the neck of the Seigne and enter Italy in the magic of Val Veni dominated by the Noire de Peuterey and the glaciers that descend from Mont Blanc. Later will come Val Ferret, guarded by the Dent du Géant and the Grand Jorasses before finally switching to Switzerland and savoring its carefully preserved environment. We will have to support the fa-tigue, overcome our doubts and anxieties. Some of us, having pushed their limits to the extreme, will prefer to stop while keeping the whole hope of completing the complete turn next time. The others will cross Bovine and Tseppes. Then, facing the Aiguille Verte, vertical Drus and the majesty of Mont Blanc, they will dive to the arrival in the heart of Chamonix. Whatever happens we will all meet again Sunday afternoon to celebrate the winners, to applaud even more the latest arrivals and to share, runners and volunteers together, our joys, our sufferings and our emotions.171 km & 10 300 m D + - 2,300 runners - Departure Friday 30/08 at 18:00 from Chamonix - First arrivals Saturday 31/08 at 14:45 in ChamonixForecast of the passage times in the Valley:Les Houches on 30/08 from 18:30 to 19:06Vallorcine from 31/08 to 12:13 to 01/09 at 10:57The flégère from 31/08 to 14:03 to 01/09 at 14:44
