We’re at the Mont Blanc Marathon this weekend

Running in the 23KM trail race

A quick post to say that Dan from Adventure 52 will be out in Chamonix this weekend to take part in the Mont Blanc Marathon weekend. 

There are number a different distances to run with the big 80KM race having already started at 4am on Friday morning.

We’ll be running in the 23KM race which starts at 8am on Saturday morning and heads up the valley and then round to the left (west) to skirt over the mountain tops overlooking Chamonix below.

If you’ve never been to Chamonix, then it really is a hub for adventure and time spent using Google Maps and Google Earth to explore it from your armchair is time well spent.

We’ll be posting updates on our social media over the weekend and also doing a write up on what it was like to run the 23K as well as some interviews with some Salomon Running sponsored athletes who we’re hoping will share some of their advice on how to start taking part in more adventurous runs and events like this.
