“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
The Ultra-Trail of Mont-Blanc (UTMB) is a sporting experience like no other. Each race represents a unique alpine adventure for the runners as they navigate in valleys and high altitudes. During the 4th week of August 2022, from the 22nd to the 28th, trail runners from everywhere met in the Alps for the competition. Not to mention, even more supporters were present to cheer for every participant. The alleys of Chamonix were loud and enthusiastic, matching the inspiring energy of the runners.
A the Hameau Albert 1er, we have always the Association ‘A Chacun Son Everest’. They lend their support and help to children, young adults, and women fighting against leukaemia or cancer. The founder, Christine Janine, has been working alongside several other partners to organise the stays and activities that the Association provides. The aim being helping those on their healing journey to rediscover their strengths and to rise back on their feet with confidence.
To lay the foundation of a special collaboration, we have decided to donate 1€ for each km ran by our guests as well as by our team members during the Ultra-Trail of Mont-Blanc. In fact, this will be the case for every trail competition organized in Chamonix throughout the year. We welcomed 12 enthusiastic and passionate sports enthusiasts to our Hotel during the UTMB week. We are positive that in the future, we will have the pleasure of welcoming even more runners with whom we will take up this engagement together.
