UTMB 2012 Gear List

UTMB… Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc… The dream that i have been living since 2009 November is becoming real. i will be running the UTMB 168km 9.600m + which is the toughest non-stop, one stage 100 mile race in the world. (Actually it is 101 miles :-))

I ran UTMB TDS and CCC before. This is the big brother of them circumnavigating the Mt Blanc massive. This year is the 10th year and hope everything will go well and me + my friends who is running will be able to finish in full health.

My aim is to be lighter like around 3.5 Kg in total gear.

Pure mandatory equipment with lighest as possible that i could borrowed and bought. Thanks to Castleberg Outdoors that they have equipped me with a great  goretex Haglofs Endo Pull II jacket + Hoka Stinson shoe and helped me to buy a brand new Salomon XT Wings S-Lab 5 .

UTMB TDS Rapor

Tam 10 aydır hayalini kurduğum yarışa gitmek için sabah erken kalktım ve trenle Londra Gatwick havalimanına gittim. Elimde sırt çantam ve içinde bagaj kaybolmasına karşılık zorunlu malzemelerim vardı. Su geçirmez diğer bir çantamda ise kullanacağım jeller, ayakkabı ve kıyafetlerim. Çok uyuyamamıştım. Tabiiki de heyecandan. Dünyadaki ultra trail running anlamında bir nevi senede bir yapılan bir olimpiyatdı bu. Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc ! Okumaya devam et UTMB TDS Rapor

UTMB TDS 2011

UTMB TDS yarışına çok az kaldı. Heyecan her zamanki gibi dorukta. Bu sene bu yazımda belirttiğim gibi 8 türk arkadaş beraber Chamonix”de olacağız ve 3 parkurda beraber yarışacağız. Geçen seneye göre heyecanımın bu sene daha fazla olduğunu görüyorum. Daha önceki yıl ne göreceğimi bilmediğimden şaşkın idim. Ama bu sene neler ile karşılaşacağımı biliyorum.
