The Marathon du Mont Blanc is once again returning to Chamonix for Summer 2019. The Marathon started out as a challenging, single day 23km race. Today, the marathon has expanded into 8 races:
Duo Étoilé (a nocturnal 17km race)
Young Race Marathon (a 15km race for runners aged 15-18 years old)
This iconic racing event will take place from the 27th until the 30th June. Chamonix will welcome 4,500 runners, with 500 volunteers helping organise events and runners cheered on by over 25,000 supporters!
You can find more details about the races at the Marathon du Mont-Blanc website. There are some excellent suggestions here, if you are planning on coming to follow the races and show your support to all the runners.
