Rob and Stewart sent us this picture of them at the start of the Ultra-trail Tour Du Mont Blanc 2009.
The Ultra-trail Tour Du Mont Blanc (UTMB) is a 103 mile race through the mountains surrounding Mont Blanc in France. It starts in Chamonix, France, goes through Couymeuer in Italy and then onwards to Champex Lac in Switzerland. The race finishes in Chamonix. There is a time limit of 46 hours to complete this grueling event. Rob and Stewart, fuelled by Soreen participated in this event. Both agree that Soreen was an important source of carbohydrate needed to fuel their running and their staying awake through 2 nights. Rob said ‘ Seeing my wife at checkpoints with more Soreen was a joy as I knew I would be able to keep on going’.
