Complete the well known TOUR du MONT BLANC in a challenging 5 day trail running adventure. Following the main path of the original route one not only gets the know the fascinating beauty of the Mont Blanc Massive, but also a glimpse into the world and fascination of UTMB; probably the most famous trail running event in the world.The collection is designed to offer the best of both worlds. It is a challenge of endurance and mountain running, but still keeps the vibe of a 5 day through hiking experience. To keep the pack/vest small and light, each tour ends at one of the lovely Refugios along the path. Besides slippers, warm meals and simple but strengthening breakfast buffets, a shower and a bed awaits the sore muscles every night. The only essential item to bring is a chalet liner (Hüttenschlafsack). Most of the places also offer facilities to hand wash and dry clothes. All in all one should be able to fit all essentials in a 5–10L running vest.Since the tour crosses a few villages and towns it is also possible to restock food along the way. One might not be able to get the latest endurance nutrition products, but cereal bars and other groceries will do the trick too.
