UTMB® for the Planet is not a sporting competition but an individual and solidarity challenge to show resilience in the face of the health and economic crisis that is hitting outdoor events since the pandemic.
UTMB® for the Planet, the digital and unifying initiative launched after the cancellation of the UTMB® Mont-Blanc, was a great Success for its First Edition!
From July 20 to August 30, UTMB® for the Planet provided the global community of trail runners with an innovative way to interact remotely and to take on new challenges in the absence of an event.
The initiative, which was supported by WWF France, has been hailed a great success with runners from all over the world coming together to take part in the 4 Virtual Races and a dozen Partner Challenges, with 17,385 participations from no less than 106 countries.
UTMB® for the Planet was a natural extension of the UTMB® Mont-Blanc and WWF France partnership which has been in place since 2019, and together they share the common objective of reconciling trail running activities with the environmental challenges of the territories.
