UTMB® 2016 – An incredible week for the French race of the Ultra-Trail World Tour
Caroline Chaverot and Ludovic Pommeret win a very hot edition of the UTMB®!
At 6PM on Friday 26th, the tension was obvious in the eyes of the 2.400 runners at the start of the UTMB®, the French summit of trail running and 10th stage of the Ultra-Trail World Tour.
The weather has been incredibly hot all week long and a warm night was to expect from the runners.
Both men and women races were the most exciting to follow in the UTMB® history, with stunning American runners dominated by a French surprise in the men’s race, and Caroline Chaverot feeling the pressure of Andrea Huser until the end in the women’s race.
