Salomon Runner François D’Haene sets record at The Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc
Every year, at the end of August, the trails around the Mont Blanc get really busy for one of the most amazing competitions ever organized, The North Face Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (UTMB). A complete tour of the Mont Blanc Massif, passing through 3 countries: France, Switzerland and Italy; a must for all the trail runners. From start to finish, the 7th edition of “the race of all the superlatives”, seemed to run like a master class put on by winner François D’Haene. His run was clean, with no major problems. D’Haene established a new record (20h11’44”) and surpassed the previous record held by 2013’s champ, Xavier Thevenard. Not to mention François was wearing Salomon Running apparel powered by 37.5™ Technology. No wonder he set a new course record.
