Friday evening at 18,30 pm August the 31st, the 10th edition of UTMB is underway. You can follow the drama online as the fastest runners will be equipped with GPS tracker devices at some point into the race.

Another welcome upgrade is The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® Web-TV, which will broadcast direct day and night, until Sunday August 2nd. Live race coverage, TV studio, reports, television news, follow the races on the TV!.. And for all those who want to see it again and again playbacks will be accessible throughout the year.

Follow the race via the official website.

According to the weather forecast snow and rain is expected. Watch this clip about mandatory gear.

For some background, check out this pre-race article about the expected favourites etc.
