All trails are marked and a GPX is provided. Water and fruit will be available at aid stations. Runners should bring additional energy and other important mandatory equipment (see equipment). Given the altitude and general hard conditions you should have experience before taking on a longer distance.
Very strong sun or heavy rain is always a possibility in the mountains. Any participation in this unique event is completely at your own risk and you will be required to sign a waiver (download HERE) in order to participate.
You don’t have to be a fast runner to join VMM, but you better be tough and looking for a unique adventure of hiking or running!
