***Given the time of year the route is very likely to be either muddy, icy, entirely snow-covered, or a combination of these conditions. As a result, traction devices (such as Black Diamond Access Spike or Kahtoola MICROspikes) are highly recommended. Staying on-trail at all times will be mandatory.***
Cold Weather Kit and Navigation
In the event of extra cold weather the race may require runners to carry mandatory equipment and clothing. See UTMB's required kit list for an example of what may be required.
In the event of snowy and/or windy weather affecting visibility, the race may require runners to carry a smart phone with a GPS App with the race course downloaded (GPX).
