Run and help those who need it
Since the beginning of its time, the UTMB® has always wanted to associate the energy of the event with a spirit of solidarity. Our mountain culture places an importance on human relations and mutual aid. We are impregnated with the famous spirit of 'roped partners' and animated by this willingness to help each other to gain personal victories : to get over a difficult moment, to fight against an illness or to help children grow up and flourish.
So the UTMB® has developed several ways of collecting donations for partner charitable associations. The organisation supports 5 associations directly through a system of contributions made during registration for each of its 5 events. Besides, 140 SOLIDARITY RACE-BIBS are granted to runners who wish to support one of our partner associations by donating 2000€, paid directly or through sponsors in order to raise the sum. Finally, each runner can, if they wish to do so, take advantage of their participation to support an association of their choice by being sponsored so as to show their support for the organisation.
The UTMB® has create strong links with the associations they support, following the implementation of the actions and favouring human exchange between the runners, the organisers and the associations.

Support young Indian girls from Himalaya
and help them to keep on living in the mountains!
Since 2013, Plan International intervenes in Uttrakhand, a Himalayan rural district to fight against rural exodus. When supporting our NGO, you contribute in helping these young women to reach decent jobs and keep on living with their communities.
Every year, thousands of them are left isolated because their husbands moved to town in order to ensure the household’s survival. Therefore, Plan International has decided to implement an auto-entrepreneurial program (named Saksham) enabling these girls to meet their households’ financial needs.
Since 2013, nearly 400 girls have now access to a decent job. Thanks to our continuous apprenticeship programs and our training sessions, their rural environment is no longer an obstacle to auto-entrepreneurship and quality professional trainings.
Just like these remarkable athletes, support Plan International!
