How can you train for the huge, technical hill-climbs of the Ultra Tour du Mont Blanc (UTMB) in Britain? And how do you fuel such a mammoth running and speed-hiking challenge? UTMB coach and CCC completer Julia Tregaskis-Allen from Tracks & Trails Mountain Adventure Holidays shares her 20 top tips. She explains how to train for the UTMB (or any 100 mile or long distance trail race or ultra marathon) without necessarily having mountains nearby, and how nutrition is such an important part of a successful finish.

Thanks very much to Julia for her hard won advice. If you’re doing the UTMB, OCC, CCC, TDS or LPT and want help training and recce-ing the routes, please visit at Tracks and Trails. www.tracks-and-trails.com/
