Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc 'Virtual Race'

Can’t make it to France and the starting line this summer at the Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc race? (Neither can I.) Well, a new Facebook app by Polartec and The North Face lets you virtually run the 166KM course and get entered into drawings to win TNF and Polartec swag. Facebookers can check it out at http://www.facebook.com/Polartec

Bonus: Virtual Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc runners can enter their email for a chance to win the grand prize, a three-day trip for two to Chamonix to watch the race action live!
