Ready For PTL 2017

The PTL® (Petite Trotte à Léon) is one of the 5 events on offer within the framework of the UTMB®. It opens the event. Its conception is original and its unusual specificities distinguish it from other races. The spirit of the PTL® depends upon mental engagement, an adventurous team spirit as well as sporting values and also those of the mountains. This ultra-endurance pedestrian event leads participants on a large tour of Mont-Blanc (290km and 26500m of ascent),taking high routes, without way-markers on the ground, which necessitates the sense of orientation on and off paths. Each year the route is different to allow for the discovery of the richness and diversity of paths in France, Italy and Switzerland within the Mont-Blanc massif.

The PTL® is realised in teams of 2 or 3 inseparable and loyally supportive people, without final ranking. The teams move through a rough, technically exacting and mentally and physically demanding mountain environment.

For its 10th year the start of the PTL® is fixed for Monday August 28th 2017 at 9am, from the Place du Triangle de l'Amitié in Chamonix. The finishers will be judged in the same place, until Sunday September 3rd at 16:30, so a maximum time of 151:30 hours.

The proposed course around Mont-Blanc, omnipresent, and its prestigious satellites, is this year still innovative and outstanding. You will cross little known areas, often difficult to access and with the most breath-taking views. (source : PTL 2017 )

Trail Running - Because we're loving every wonderful, horrible minute of this.

Saya seperti akan berada ke dalam scenes sebuh film, karena impian saya terkadang berasal dari film-film yang saya tonton. Nanti agustus saya bukan lagi seorang penonton, tapi akan memainkan peran didalamnya, dan saya akan memberikan yang terbaik dari semua talenta yang saya miliki untuk menjadikannya The Best Adventure of My Life.

Selalu yakin bahwa Allah beserta orang-orang yang percaya, bismillah #roadtoPTL2017
