UMS: the first post-confinement trail is coming up !
Much more than a trail, the Ultra Montée du Salève (UMS) is an atypical, attractive and innovative event.
After more than 6 months without being able to wear a single race number (due to government measures to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus), runners are impatiently waiting for the resumption of competitions.
In just about one month, this possibility will be given to them again !
We, at the Athlé St-Julien 74, are more motivated than ever to put our efforts to share with you this return to “normal life”.
Initially scheduled for April 10, the UMS has been rescheduled for the beginning of the summer season, on Saturday, June 12, 2021. Each year, this race attracts many runners wishing to challenge themselves on an original race format.
“The last edition of the UMS was held on Saturday, October 10, 2020. Despite the pandemic, thanks to the meticulous work of all, the success was resounding. With our experience in organizing such an event in a period of health crisis, we are doubly motivated and invested to make the 2021 edition of the UMS a even bigger success”, says the race director.
He adds: “Runners can register without fear. For the safety and comfort of all, a health protocol has been defined. Reduction of the number of participants, division of the starting groups, compulsory wearing of masks in the start and finish areas as well as in the cable car tunnel and gondolas, direction of traffic for the withdrawal of race numbers and the prize-giving ceremony, reduction of the capacity of the skips, all precautionary measures have been imagined. Let people be reassured, all measures have been taken so that the event, safe, remains friendly”, says the race director.
Unique in the world because of its originality, the UMS challenges the participants to climb the Mont-Salève as many times as possible during 6 hours, by the Pas-de-l’Echelle trail (3.2km for 663m+); the descents are made with the cable car.
Created in 2010, the Ultra Montée du Salève is now an undisputed world reference in the world of trail running and, more broadly, running.
