Jez Bragg, Lizzy Hawker Win Truncated 2010 Ultra Trail de Mont Blanc

(Lizzy Hawker on her way to a win)

Severe rain and fog forced organizers of the 2010 Ultra Trail de Mont Blanc to cancel the full event, choosing to instead race a 100km version the following day. British runners Jez Bragg (10:30:37) and Lizzy Hawker (11:47:30) won that event which traced the Courmayeur-Champex-Chamonix course. Fellow North Face athlete Mike Wolfe followed Bragg by 7 minutes. The Grough has a press recap.
