Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
One last hurrah before the end of the year. Runners, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat along the trails of Squaxin Park.
This year for the 20th Anniversary of the UTMB race the organization invited their ‘legends’ back to Chamonix. Legends are runners who won the race in previous years. There was a big celebration and presentation in Chamonix center square and the legends were presented with engraved bracelets. On top of the in town presentation UTMB reserved big #20 for a relay run where some of these ‘legends’ participated and were able to run one stretch of the full loop taking the bib all around the mountain.
Runners in that anniversary relay include:
I wish these type of activities UTMB puts on would be better publicized for the folks not on the ground in Chamonix.
