The organisation's buses

An exceptional, communal transport system is planned for the competitors and those persons accompanying them in an attempt to limit the green-house gas emissions and particles. Let us, together, avoid these races, in the middle of nowhere, engendering an immense swarm of cars around Mont-Blanc.

During the UTMB®, the CCC®, the TDS® and the OCC, buses are available for:

  • Taking the CCC® & TDS® runners to the start in Courmayeur.
  • Taking the OCC runners to the start in Orsières.
  • To repatriate runners to Chamonix or Courmayeur at the end of the race or in case of abandonment.
  • To allow accompanying persons to go and see their runners in all the villages through which the races pass without using their private vehicles (see map).

Access conditions

  • Volunteers and organisation members: free access on presentation of your badge.
  • Competitors: free access upon presentation of your race-bib.
  • Accompanying persons: UNLIMITED PASS (from Wednesday morning) = 30€ per person
    Free for the children under age 15 accompanied by a parent
Priority for access to buses is as follows:
  1. Members of the organisation (volunteers or organisation) when moving around between posts
  2. The competitors
  3. Accompanying persons
Schedules are indicative because they will be adapted during the event according to the constraints of the organisation and possible traffic problems.
The "PC-TRANSPORT" (organisers) in Chamonix and Courmayeur are at your disposal throughout the race to advise you.

Taking into account the possibility of having to wait for buses during the night and the possibility of difficult weather conditions, this system is really not recommended for very young children.
Pets are not encouraged on the organisation's buses; each driver is free to refuse them on their bus.
If those accompanying you choose to use their personal vehicle to follow your race, suggest that they find others to joint them to optimise their journeys!
