The UTMB Mont-Blanc's newest addition to the line-up is the ETC - Experience Trail Courmayeur, a 15km race with a beastly 1300 meters of total elevation gain in the heart of the Italian Alps. This new race is ideal if you would like to put yourself to the test and be part of the UTMB Mont-Blanc experience.

Start in Courmayeur, an iconic village in the Mont Blanc landscape. After a beautiful yet challenging first ascent of 750 meters of elevation gain, you will discover the balconies of the Valley d’Aosta region, while enjoying breathtaking views of the Mont-Blanc. You will then continue on to complete the loop back into Courmayeur.

In other words, the ETC contains amazing landscapes in the heart of the Italian Alps, a great challenge to enter the trail running adventure and the possibility to taste an authentic pizza just after crossing the finish line.
