The best pho­tos from the 2018 UTMB – the world sum­mit of trail run­ning

Not for noth­ing is the Ul­tra-Trail du Mont-Blanc known as the world’s great­est trail fes­ti­val. Its blue riband race cov­ers 170km of the finest scenery and most test­ing ter­rain the Euro­pean Alps have to of­fer. The 2018 race, held in Septem­ber, was com­pleted by more than 1700 hardy souls de­spite mis­for­tunes be­falling many of the favourites; in­clud­ing for­mer win­ner Kil­ian Jor­net, who dropped out af­ter be­ing stung by a bee be­fore the start. The fol­low­ing pages show­case some defin­ing im­ages from this year’s event.
