L'Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (UTMB®)


With 18 thriving past editions, the UTMB® is one of the most expected sports competition worldwide, bringing together almost 10,000 athletes every year. A huge part of its indisputable success is owed to an indispensable group of people who often do not get enough recognition for their hard work - the volunteers.

The UTMB’s organizing team is beginning to recruit hundreds of volunteers who will ensure the smooth running of all races held from 22 to Sunday 28 August 2022 and help trailers achieve their dreams of crossing the finish line.

The organization, which also recently unveiled the poster for this edition, probably without health restrictions, is still looking for novice or passionate athletes to complete its teams. Retired, active, young and old people are all welcome. In total, more than forty different positions are offered.
