The Trail Running Film Festival - Back on Tour for 2024.
Doug Mayer on the Run the Alps Blog:
Up close, Alps trail running is often very different than how it appears from a distant horizon. The fact is, most trail running in the Alps isn’t made up of marquee brands like Ultraks, Golden Trail, Skyrunning, or UTMB Mont Blanc. Much of it is very much like in the US, where I first started trail running. It’s volunteer-organized, locally based, low-key and very much a good time.
Wherever you go, at the heart of our sport are still small community-based trail races that are welcoming to everyone. All you need is a pair of sneakers and any excitement for adventure.
