WHAT IS THE UTMB?
The UTMB is the ultimate trail running event.
Anticipated by thousands of people worldwide, this race brings together trail runners from all over the world.
The Dacia UTMB Mont-Blanc, the Final of the UTMB World Series, brings together the world’s greatest elite in Chamonix, as well as over 10,000 passionate runners to take part in one of the eight Dacia UTMB Mont-Blanc races.
Let’s see what happened this year!
SIDAS, OFFICIAL PARTNER OF THE UTMB 2023
For 20 years now, runners from all over the world have been coming to Chamonix, all with the same goal: to cross the finish line!
As foot specialists, we want to help athletes achieve their dreams in the best possible conditions.
So, we became an official partner of the UTMB 2023.
Our aim? To help runners prepare their feet before, during, and after the races. To avoid blisters and prevent damage to the skin of the feet.
Did you know that 16% of runners drop out of races, and 20–50% have foot problems due to poor preparation or equipment?
As your official partner, it’s our duty to protect your feet and offer you the best tools for looking after them.
Here are our essentials:
Ideal for protecting the skin against irritating rubbing, which can be skin against skin, skin against equipment, and skin against fabric.
It prevents blisters and soothes rubbing and redness, ensuring comfort throughout sporting activity.
The gel toe cap
The last thing you want when running is to bang your toes against your shoe!
Cushion the impact through your shoe and prevent black toenails with a gel toe cap.
Trail running socks
Wearing the wrong socks can lead to painful blisters.
SIDAS socks are designed to give you exceptional protection and comfort during outdoor running, whether on the trails or in the mountains: breathability, optimum comfort, and guaranteed foot protection.
Because feeling confident makes all the difference during your runs, equip yourself with the best and enjoy your activity with complete peace of mind!
