Running around the Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB)

It’s been two months since our crazy trip, and I still can’t believe that experience actually happened! Over the course of 5 days (June 28 – July 2, 2016), Weez and I ran-hiked the iconic Tour du Mont Blanc in France, Switzerland, and Italy.

105 miles // 30,000 ft of elevation gain.

We carried all of our gear in 20L backpacks weighing about 12-15lbs, stayed in refuges each night, and had the time of our lives.

If you’re interested in the logistics:
– Night 1: Refuge Mottets
– Night 2: Refugio Bertone (most amazing hut)
– Night 3: Gite Bon Abri
– Night 4: Refuge de la Flegere

We brought a GoPro along for the journey, and well, the video pretty much sums it all up :) I hope you enjoy!
