Thanks to HOKA for sponsoring iRunFar’s coverage of the 2022 UTMB.

For the 12th edition in a row, iRunFar is covering UTMB! The UTMB course is 171.5 kilometers (106.5 miles) long with over 10,000 meters (32,800 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 26.

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 for in-depth coverage from the course during the race.

The UTMB has seen numerous small course changes through time. Most notably, in 2015, the race course increased in length by a couple of very difficult kilometers when the Col des Pyramides Calcaires in Italy was added to it. In 2014, François D’Haene ran the fastest time on the original course in 20:11:44, while Pau Capell from 2019 has the fastest men’s time of 20:19:07 for the route including Pyramides Calcaires. In 2021, Courtney Dauwalter ran seven minutes faster than Rory Bosio did in setting the previous overall UTMB women’s record, thereby unifying the women’s course records in 22:30:54.
