Our women's preview for the 2012 The North Face Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc. @TNFUTMB #UTMB

The North Face Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc begins at 6:30 pm local (Central European) time on Friday evening August 31. (That’ll be 12:30 pm Eastern Time and 10:30 am Mountain Time for readers in North America.) This year, some 2,300 runners will blast off into the evening on a counter-clockwise circuit of the Mont Blanc Massif, the 4,800-meter, glacier and snow-capped peak forming a geographic boundary between France, Italy, and Switzerland. The cobblestones and history of downtown Chamonix serve as both the starting and finish lines. On their journey around the mountain, runners, or “trailers” as they are called here, will encounter 167.7K (104.2 miles) of terrain bearing 9,618 meters (31,500′) of climb in those three aforementioned countries.
