The 165km Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc, or UTMB, is about to start in France and we’ll be following along as Montrail athlete Geoff Roes takes a crack at the challenge.

Thus far Geoff has enjoyed his time in France, which has included catching up with friends, running the last 10 miles of the course, and passing a drug test administered by the race officials.  Bryon Powell of irunfar.com caught up with Geoff for a quick interview as well.

Follow along with the race at the official site or with Bryon on his IRunFar twitter account as well as on his website.

The race will start at 9:30am PT, 12:30pm ET in the USA.  Good luck to all the runners!
