The Mont Blanc Massif is really and amazing place. It is a paradise for climbers, Alpinist, skiers, trekkers and runners. Last weekend, Anna and I enjoyed it as trail runner as we ran around the Massif along the famous Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB). After two Ultra-marathon; the Spine Challenger and the Ultra-Trail Mont Fuji I wanted to run another 170 km but in 4 days rather than during a non-stop race.

We broke down the TMB in 4 stages to have enough time to enjoy every kilometer of this beautiful place. We followed some alternative routes to stay closer the mountain and to avoid the heat of the valleys. Overall we ran 170 km with +10,000 m of ascent.
