Marathon du Mont Blanc 2017 Results

Results from all the weekend's trail running races

After a very hot and humid weekend of trail running, the 2017 Marathon du Mont Blanc has come to a close and the salon has already been packed up and moved on. 

With a heatwave sweeping across Europe in the past week, Friday & Saturday's trail runners had to contend with some pretty scorching conditions, and dusty, baked hard trails.

By Sunday, an overnight storm had cooled temperatures from the low to mid thirties °C to more manageable mid 20's, which must have come as a relief to the two thousand competitors of the 42km marathon race.
