Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
Olympia, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat on the trails of Squaxin Park.
UTMB shares on social media:
12,000 people transported.
150 buses deployed.
6000 cars avoided.
4 tons of CO2 avoided.
This is the outcome of this UTMB Mont-Blanc 2022.
Thanks to our partner Autoroutes et Tunnel du Mont Blanc, we have, once again this year, deployed an exceptional plan to transport runners and those accompanying them to the start points and throughout the course. Every year, we are committed to putting everything in place to reduce the number of cars in city centers, to improve the carbon impact of the event, and it is thanks to the ATMB, and to you, that we were able to achieve this again in 2022.
Is this good? Good enough? A good start? Better than nothing? It’s something, and more than most other races do. So, that’s worth noting.
Also worth noting that these buses were far from perfect and I heard from several people how getting around with them was challenging. (Not that if everyone would’ve driven in their own car and hoped for a parking spot it would’ve solved all this.)
