Being a volunteer for the UTMB® is an exciting experience which will broaden one's horizons.

As a volunteer for the UTMB® 2019, one will have the opportunity to be part of an international event, to meet people from all over the world and initiate longtime friendships.

Two thousand volunteers are expected to meet in Chamonix during the last week of August and to participate in the organization of the largest event of trail running in the world.

There are many lines of work needed for this edition of the UTMB®, such as doctors, nurses, station managers, radio operators, race commissioners, transport, catering etc.

Volunteers are an essential part of the UTMB®, as they help runners fulfil their dreams of crossing the finish line.
