Join Run the Alps and Trail Butter in Chamonix

Aug 27, 2019

It’s the big Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® week here in Chamonix, France, and the town has come alive with tens of thousands of trail runners and friends. It’s an exciting time to be here in the home of Run the Alps.

There are events all over town throughout the week, and Run the Alps is pleased to be part of that scene, as well!

We’ve partnered with two of our favorite pals— Trail Butter and Moody Coffee Roasters— for a trail run and Trail Butter tasting event. Here’s the scoop, from Trail Butter’s Jeff Boggess, who is here in town with us:

Hey all, Jeff from Trail Butter here. Jumping on the Run the Alps blog to let folks who are in Chamonix this week know that we’re getting together for a group run led by Run the Alps guide Emily Geldard, followed by a Trail Butter tasting.

Here’s the scoop:
