SCOTT Sports sponsored elite British ultra runner Andy Symonds started UTMB (Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc) last year with the aim of placing high in the iconic mountain ultra run event. Things didn’t go according to plan in 2016; and having dropped in Champex Lac, he had unfinished business with the race.
The Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc is a single-stage mountain ultramarathon. The annual event takes place in late August/early September in the Alps. This year’s event ran from 28 August to 3 September 2017. This year, the goal for Andy Symonds was simple: cross the finish line. SCOTT has released a video to track Andy’s journey for his attempt to become a UTMB finisher.
In 2018, UTMB race weekend will take place from 27 August to 2 September.
