I went to the 2019 Mountain Running Festival in Chamonix, France not knowing what to expect. The Chamonix Mountain Running Festival turned out to be one of the best mountain running festivals I have attended.
At this festival, I made new friends. I met some of the best athletes in the world. I learned about mountain running safety, how to take care of your body when running, and how to run up mountains or steep sections. I tried some of the newest gear and sampled products.
We learned from different people: physical therapists, elite athletes racing the UTMB, mountaineers, helicopter rescue pilots, and the list goes on.
This event is going to be the next big thing. The Chamonix Mountain Running Festival started in 2018 and has since doubled in size. The event this year had a wait list due to the fact of its growing number of people wanting to attend.
The best part of this event is that ALL of this knowledge and information about mountain running is free.
I recommend this event to anyone of any level of running or a hiker or walkers who want to learn more about life in the mountains.
Are you convinced? Do you want to come next year? Let’s go!
The person who created this incredible event is Chloë Lanthier. Get in touch with her directly on her website if you want to attend in future years.
