Stunning Images from Marathon du Mont-Blanc 2016
Some incredible scenery from an incredible weekend of races.
Chamonix, France, is one of the world’s preeminent trail running destinations. Not only does it have amazing trails through the heart of the Alps and some of Europe’s highest and most scenic mountains, but it also has marquee races, including the June 24-26 Marathon du Mont-Blanc weekend. More than 5,300 runners competed in one of the five races—a 10K, 23K, 42K, 80K and Vertical Kilometer. Here are some of the amazingly scenic highlights from the weekend from photographers Pierre Raphoz, Gaetan Haugeard and Leslie Delamarre.
