UTMB Group has announced UTMB for the Planet, a virtual sporting event that will be accessible to all runners from around the world. The announcement follows the cancellation of the 2020 edition of the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc due to the Covid 19 pandemic. The digital competition, which starts on July 20, will include four virtual races reflecting the main distances of the event: UTMB Virtual 50, UTMB Virtual 100, UTMB Virtual 170 and UTMB Virtual 240. Participation in the virtual UTMB for the Planet races is free. In the meantime, registered participants are encouraged to donate an amount of their choice to support projects of WWF France, which has been in partnership with the UTMB since 2019.
