The UTMB or Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc is an internationally renowned sporting event, made up of four foot races in the middle of nature that crosses France, Italy and Switzerland, and will take place from August 28 to September 3, 2017.

For this fourteenth edition, a 168km course brought together amateurs and professionals.

The presence of the Foundation of the Academy of Medicine manifested itself through the solidarity bibs: fourteen runners chose to donate 2000 € each to the Foundation in exchange for being able to participate in the race wearing its colours and we would like to express our gratitude to them and thank them for this.

Despite difficult, even extreme conditions, the riders were satisfied with the experience.
