UTMB takes live tracking to the next level. Their coverage is easily accessible, remarkably accurate, and incredibly extensive.
The race starts at 6 pm on Friday. Chamonix is +1 hour relative to GMT/UTC; for those in the US, the race starts at:
- ET: 12 pm
- CT: 11 am
- MT: 10 am
- PT: 9 am
I expect to finish in about 24 hours on Saturday evening.
Track UTMB live
Visit the race website: http://utmbmontblanc.com. The homepage is now dedicated to live coverage.
You can search me by name (I’m the only “Skurka” in the race) or bib number (#134). Save runners you’re watching as “Favorites” for quick access.
In addition to current standings, you can see historical tracking and forecasted splits, e.g. that I was 75th at Mi 45 and 35th at Mi 75; and that I’m expected to arrive in Trient at 3:42 pm. If you’re really into it, there’s also video coverage and live commentary.
Amanda will have my cell phone and will be posting throughout the race to Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/andrewskurka.
Don’t forget to cheer on Amanda, too — she’s going to have to stay up through the night and navigate a shuttle system with drivers that don’t speak fluent English!
I might also get a mention on the iRunFar Twitter feed, although I suspect they will be more focused on Top 10 men and women, and I wouldn’t expect to join those ranks until late in the race, if ever.
Best of luck!
“Chamonix is +1 hour relative to GMT/UTC”
Actually it’s UTC+2 (because of summer time).
And good luck!
Will be fun to watch! Have fun!
Go AMANDA GO! Lots of us excitedly, watching along, thanks so much for your efforts!
Congratulations! Very good result, especially considering the weather conditions and the quality of the competitors. 24:45 is an awesome time!
Well done, Andrew! One question: Does the race route include the ladders?
No, and I wasn’t disappointed.
Andrew, Bravo on a great race. Also, thanks for the tip on using neoprene gloves – I used them for my (much slower) finish. Chris
Amanda did make my personal Twitter feed during UTMB. 🙂
