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