The 2018 Ultra-Trail® World champion strikes again

08 Σεπ 2019

UTMB® Week is definitely the most intense week of the Ultra-Trail® World Tour, with 3 races in total including one of the two Bonus Series of the year, and probably the biggest athletes gathering that we can see...


He was expected, he did not disappoint!
The 2018 UTWT champion who has already won 3 races including a Bonus Series in 2019 was at the start of the UTMB® this year, with huge expectations... But that did not stop him! Indeed, by winning the 2019 edition of the UTMB®, Pau Capell has now the first place in the UTWT 2019 ranking! At his side, Xavier Thévenard, already three-time champion of the race, who was expected this year to become the first to win 4 editions could not keep up the pace, but he fought till the end, ending in second place after Pau. In third place, New Zealand Scott Hawker, completes the podium!

Queen Courtney
Champion of Tarawera and MIUT 2019, Courtney was also eagerly awaited on UTMB® 2019!

She quickly dominated the women's race to finish 1 hour ahead of the second and win the race by finishing 21st of the scratch! Swedish Kristin Berglund is in second place ahead of the Spanish, Maite Maiora, who completes the podium.

Volvic's chalet

We had the pleasure this year to share our UTMB® chalet with our official partner Volvic.

Visitors and runners were able to come to refresh themselves: distribution of 75CL sport bottle and Volvic drink tasting were on the program with the possibility to recycle these bottles thanks to the Lemon sorting device.

For each recycled bottle were many prizes to win including Volvic's official ambassador Kilian Jornet’s watch and race kit.

The emblematic Volvic Volcanic Experience race was also present to allow people to discover its beautiful Auvergne landscapes and the uniqueness of its project!
This was an opportunity for the brand to meet athletes, families and nature lovers from around the world and live exceptional moments of sharing and authenticity.
