UTMB Replacement/Resumption in Place
Runners are getting on buses now to go to Courmayeur. Runner have the option of running the CCC (Courmayeur Champex Chamonix) 98 kilometer (61 mile) race as a replacement for yesterday’s canceled Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc. Not sure who’s gonna show up, but we’ll be covering the race again on Twitter. (iRunFar Twitter feed)
From the elite field, we know that Geoff Roes and Tracy Garneau will not be restarting. For the Americans following, I know that at the least Helen Cospolich, Mike Wolfe, Scott Mason, Cory Johnson, and Erich Peitzsch are running. UK fans, Lizzy Hawker and Jez Bragg are in. From France, Sebastien Chaigneau will be representing. We’re pretty darn sure that Karl Meltzer and Nicholas Mermoud will be there. More runners we’ve learned of: Julien Chorier, Samuel Bonaudo, Fernanda Maciel & Nérea Martinez Urruzola.
We’ll try to update folks on who else is there via Twitter.
