Video: Running the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc with the Nike Elite Trail Team
The Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc is one of the most well known and challenging endurance races in the world. It takes place each summer in the Alps, with several route options available. In 2015, a team of Nike Elite Trail runners traveled to Europe to take part in the CCC (Chamonix-Courmayeur-Champex) a 101 km (63 mile) race that starts in Courmayeur, Italy and finishes in Chamonix, France. This race has over 20,000 ft of positive elevation gain, and challenges competitors with unpredictable weather and tough trail conditions too. This short documentary video takes us along for the ride at this epic event, giving us a glimpse of what this amazing race is all about, and what it takes to finish it.
