In addition to the classic solo MXTREM where each runner completes the entire race in solo, a new duo/relay format will be featured this year! Each runner of the duo team will obtain 5 UTMB points!
 
The 1st runner will start the race from Chillon medieval castle to Chaux Alps, where he will join the 2nd runner and they will run together as a duo from Chaux Alps to Gryon through the Muveran massif. This common section will allow to create a real team spirit and effort between the two runners, the 2nd runner acting as a « pacer » for the 1st. In Gryon, the 1st runner finishs his race and the 2nd runner will complete the adventure on his own from Gryon to Montreux.
