Become a volunteer
Discover below the testimonies of volunteers present on the UTMB Mont-Blanc for several years, and you too, join the adventure!
"Ah! Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc, my best memory is from my first participation in the race in 2010 where I was at the finish. Today I'm in Switzerland in a big feeder. I like the fact that I can change position every year. Every year the runners show great kindness by thanking warmly the volunteers and the organization. They forget their fatigue and tell us how they feel." (Marie, involved with us since 2010)
"Nurse anesthetist, I joined the UTMB® medical team 13 years ago. Today, I am in charge of the nurses. On each event, we do our utmost to help the runners cross the finish line because we know that this represents more than a race for them. This means listening to them, advising them, giving them advice and consoling them if they have to give up. When I know that we have helped a runner cross the finish line, we share that finisher's bib with the same joy and happiness as they do." (Noah, committed to us since 2016)
