Video: Running the 2017 Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc

This year’s Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc was run this past weekend, bringing some of the best ultra-runners in the world together to take on a tough course around the race’s namesake mountain. It was billed as quite a showdown, with one of the deepest fields the sport has seen. In the end, Francois D’haene came away with the victory, finishing in 19 hours, 1 minute, and 32 seconds. That was 15+ minutes faster than Kilian Jornet, who we all know is a tough runner. Check out the action below.
