We have been awarded 2 qualifying points for the 2015
"The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc®".
The qualifying race give points for every race of The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc®, not just for the UTMB®, but the TDS™ and of course the CCC® also. check out their website
This is an iconic set of events for which during the UTMB® participants are required to non-sto circumnavigate Mount Blanc, starting and finishing in Chamonix
In the CCC® participants are required to travel the 2nd (and by no means the lesser) half of the course from Courmayeur in Italy to Chamonix in France.
The TDS™ A race in open country along the ‘Grande Randonnée’ paths crossing though the Mont-Blanc, Beaufort, Tarentaise and Aosta valley countryside.
A mountainous event, including numerous sections at altitude (>2,500m), in weather conditions which can be very difficult (night, wind, cold, rain or snow), requiring a very good level of fitness, the appropriate equipment and a real capacity for personal autonomy.
Anyone who wishes to enter must gain qualifying points to show their eligibility.
They are as follows;
UTMB® 2014 : 7 points acquired between 2012/01/01 and 2013/12/31 (in 3 races maximum)
CCC® 2014 : 2 points acquired between 2012/01/01 and 2013/12/31
TDS™ 2014 : 2 points acquired between 2012/01/01 and 2013/12/31
The eligibility of a race is decided upon by the Ultra-Trail team.
After reviewing our route map and the near 10,000 ft of positive gain, aid stations and terrain they have decided that.
The Wreckers challenge will be worth 2 points to all finishers to count towards their total for 2015.
we are thrilled about this and hope you will agree, they will be well earned.
And here is our badge to prove it.
