2019 UTMB Live Coverage

2019 CamelBak Ultra Pro VestFor the 10th year in a row, iRunFar is covering UTMB! The UTMB is 170 kilometers (105.6 miles) long with 10,000 meters (33,000 feet) of climbing, and it encircles the famed Mont Blanc, starting and finishing in Chamonix, France, while traveling through Italy and Switzerland in the process. The race starts at 6 p.m. CEST (10 a.m. MDT in the U.S.) on Friday, August 30.

You can find our full news stream of the event in this article as well as more resources to help you follow the race. You can also venture over to our Twitter feed and see more updates on our Facebook page.

The course records are held by Rory Bosio at 22:37:26, set at the 2013 race, and François D’haene at 20:11:44, set in 2014. Keep in mind that the race increased in length by a couple (very difficult) kilometers since these two records were set, so someone will have to have an incredible day to get under these times. But, this is 21st-century ultrarunning and someday in the not-too-distant future a runner will.

      2017 had an altered course due to weather. They took out the difficult Pyramides section as described above. They also sig. altered the course from Vallorcine (153Km) in. Separately, in my opinion, the men’s race that year was one for the ages. -Marissa

    Huge congratulations to Courtney Dauwalter, my favorite elite ultrarunner! Such a strong representative for the United States, so humble and so grateful. What a performance and what a welcoming at the finish line!!! Incredible.
