A few lines on the Kaïcedra team's experience at the UTMB® 2022:

It was a great pleasure to be in Chamonix to experience this 2022 event. Throughout the week, we followed and vibrated with our runners but also with all the other participants, all champions at their level.

What a magnificent spirit emanates from this passion that unites trailers, families, the public, all the volunteers and of course the members of the UTMB organization.

We are proud to be part of this family of solidarity.

A huge thank you to our runners:

  • Benoit Vuillermoz
  • Pedro Cordeiro
