With 8 events and 10,500 runners from 80 nationalities, the end of June vibrates every year at the time of trail in Chamonix. The Chamonix Sports Club is organizing this year’s 41st edition of the Marathon with its legendary races like the 42 km.
The Mont Blanc Marathon is a trail event with 8 races. Several distances are offered to riders from all over the world to participate with family or friends. More than 10,500 runners from 80 different nationalities will have the joy of taking departures from Chamonix to travel the trails of the Valley. The Mont Blanc Marathon races are organized by the Chamonix Sports Club Association. Under the name Marathon du Mont-Blanc 8 races are organized: 90km from Mont-Blanc, 42km from Mont-Blanc, 23km from Mont Blanc, KM Vertical from Mont-Blanc, Starry Duet, Young Race Marathon, 10km from Mont-Blanc White and the Mini Cross of Mont Blanc (800m to 3km reserved for children according to their age categories). During 4 days, the Chamonix Valley will vibrate to the rhythm of the races: 40,000 people will be present on Chamonix to attend or participate in this event, and everything is done to welcome runners, companions and spectators in the best possible conditions. The event has become significant in a few years, so our organization is associative (non-profit) and relies on volunteers and the will of local communities. Faced with the craze, we must organize to improve the well-being and safety of all, with races taking place in the mountains in a sometimes difficult environment (especially the 90 km of Mont Blanc), runners must be aware of this particularity and prepare properly. Each rider can find a race adapted to his level of practice that will allow him to discover this unique environment that is the Valley of Chamonix-Mont-Blanc.
