Columbia presents UTMB® Stories | BEYOND ULTRA | FULL EDIT

Beyond ultra, new adventures are calling. “It's an adventure race… Adventure with a capital "A", with completely different rules to the other UTMB races,” PTL is not way-marked, so the runners navigate with GPS and maps. They must also be fully self-sufficient: there are no aid stations, they refuel at mountain huts along the course. The PTL is a team adventure. The teams of two or three must stick together during the whole event: the cordee spirit of unerring loyalty prevails. There is no ranking on the PTL; the only goal is to complete the loop, which is 300 kilometers long with 25'000 meters of ascent.”
