All the new @TNFUTMB course map, profile, and aid station info: . 7 pm start! #UTMB

Perhaps an alternative to changing the course or date at which the UTMB is run in the future, would be to expect conditions to be similar to what they have been for the past few years. Runners could sign a waiver (as is common in many U.S. races) in which they agree to be responsible for their own well being and not hold race organizers liable for whatever may happen. Anyone heading into alpine areas should be well prepared, physically, mentally and with proper gear. I would think that most if not all of these athletes are aware of what they are getting into and, with a waiver and UTMB’s extensive gear requirements, should be able to decide for themselves if they are capable and willing to run in adverse conditions.
