The final runners of the gruelling PTL and UTMB races crossed the finish line in Chamonix yesterday afternoon, marking the end to the 15th edition of this huge Ultra Trail event.
The 8,191 runners who took part in this year's events came from every corner of the globe, with 87 different countries represented. France, Spain, the USA and Great Britain had some of the highest participation numbers, with runners from as far away as Chile, Colombia, the Philippines, South Africa, Malaysia and Latvia also taking part.
The weather played a large part in this year's race, as it did last year, but for different reasons; In 2016 competitors had to deal with scorching heat and baking sunshine, whilst this year's event saw some races hit by heavy rain and snow, forcing many to drop out early.

Of those 2,537 who started the 170km race, 1,686 manged to cross the finish line with 851 DNF's (mostly due to the adverse weather). Winning times compared to last year were a little faster as the course was shortened slightly:
François d'Haene (FRA) took the win in the men's race in 19 hours 1 minute, just ahead of Kilian Jornet (SPA) in 19 hours 16 minutes. This result now means that the two men are level on 3 wins each for the UTMB. Third place was won by American Tim Tollefson who crossed the line in 19 hours 53 minutes.
