"We were lucky this year. For the very first time we had as a partner to rely on. They gave us concrete support and treated us in the same way as their most important clients."
Catherine Poletti , organizer
Three countries. 4,300 long-distance runners. Grueling mountain terrain and extreme elevations. The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® is a race almost as challenging to organize as it is to run, because competitors must be monitored closely throughout the entire event to record their achievements and ensure their safety. Alcatel-Lucent’s expertise in sports-related communication made the company the top choice to manage the enormous amount of information exchanged between organizers, participants, emergency services, media, and thousands of fans watching at home.
