Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc training

2015 is going to be an exciting year. I was successful in the UTMB draw and will be heading to Chamonix in August.

UTMB is definitely one of the most amazing ultras in the world. 170 km of trails and 10000 metres of elevation gain demands loads of training. It is far more difficult than what I've done in the past. I am now trying to set a training plan. The race is six months away but it's never to early to start training. There are a couple of races which I want to run in preparation for the big one. Eiger Ultra Trail in July and Swissalpine K78. Eiger is going to be my main training race and I'd try to run it faster than last year. I have also got a couple of long routes to train on.

If you have ever run the UTMB or any similar races, please let me hear about your experience. I'd appreciate any training advice. I'd try to post my weekly training here so you can track my progress. Also you can have a look at my movescount page.

Stay tuned


  1. awesome mamad! excited to hear how the training goes - i'm just stepping up to my first 50-miler, so i'll be eager to pick up on any tips that you have to share!

  2. Sure Patrick. I try to post a weekly update on my training. It hasn't been quite all right till now,but it is about to start.
