VUT a technical race, for real high mountain trailers. The race will also qualify for the UTMB (Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc).
The legendary kermesse, which retraces the Alta Via della Valmalenco and its shelters, develops a path that will touch as many as 15 high-altitude accommodation facilities with 4 downhill sections at over 2,600m. All bringing the competitors to cross steep jets, fast single tracks and breathtaking passages at the edge of the glaciers in the Bernina group.
Fully embracing the green spirit of the event, the VUT 2019 will be “plastic free”. Each competitor will then be provided with a special glass that will allow them to quench their thirst along the path without affecting the ecosystem of an area that is as beautiful as it is delicate.
The high mountain safety is essential. As in previous editions, VUT athletes will be monitored with satellite detectors, so as to view the progress of the race in real time. In addition to this, thanks to the partnership with helpcode.life , each trailer will be equipped with an innovative MioID bracelet branded VUT with a QRCode. In case of emergency, it will be possible to trace the identity of the competitor, knowing his medical record, blood group and any allergies. This bracelets can also be a faithful companion for other adventures or future outdoor excursions.
