KV Chamonix - UTMB® Mont-Blanc Strava Segments Series

Measure yourself against the community on the Chamonix Valley segments.

Challenge Ended: August 29, 2021
Between August 19th and 29th, take on the segments of the Chamonix valley and measure yourself against the community with UTMB® Mont-Blanc Strava Segments Series. Challenge yourself and achieve the best time possible! All finishers will be able to pick up a physical challenge badge at the Columbia stand, main partner of the UTMB® Mont-Blanc, between August 23 and 27 at the Salon Ultra-Trail®. The fastest women and men of the challenge will also be rewarded by Columbia with a goodie unique to the event.

The Chamonix Vertical Kilometer is the most iconic segment of the valley and perhaps one of the most famous among the trail running community. With an average gradient of almost 40%, it is a difficult one to complete, between the fir trees and under the gondolas leading to Planpraz.

Warning: the last quarter of the segment is steep and can be dangerous depending on the weather conditions, so don't go on it unless you have experience on this type of terrain.
