Join us for a day of Alps Trail experts sharing their knowledge, experience and tips for the biggest ultra trail race week of the year! 

An event specifically aimed at helping you maximise your potential to finish your UTMB® race

With more than 50% of Brits not finishing the event they start in UTMB® week, we want to help by making sure they have the right knowledge on preparing, the right kit and most importantly the right expectation when heading to the Alps for the UTMB® races. 

The XNRG Alps Ultra Trail Seminar aims to share as much information as possible from experienced UTMB® competitors to enable more British people to complete the event. If you're entered into any of the UTMB® races – UTMB®, TDS®, CCC®, OCC®, or thinking of entering, then this event is for you!
