Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc, photo report

31.08.2011 by Planetmountain

The North Face Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc 2011 seen through the eyes of the official photopraphers.

As reported yesterday, the ninth edition of the The North Face Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc was won by Kilian Jornet Burgada from Spain and Elizabeth Hawker from Great Britain.

After the race Burgada stated : "Because of the weather, my racing strategy changed; it became an adventure and a very intense emotional experience where I had to dig really deep in myself. It was an incredible day to share with my two team mates and Seb Chaigneau, running and pushing each other, sharing the run with friends."

Elizabeth Hawker summed up her record-breaking fourth win as follows "With a race like The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® you have to run with courage and humility – it was something very special to share the trail with so many people with passion for mountains and trails. I had a lot of pain in my hip and it took a lot for me to finish. I wasn’t sure if I would get to the end, but the shouts of ‘courage’ from the supporters helped me through."
