THE ORIGINAL AND QUEEN OF THE RACES [ Friday August the 30th ]



Federico, on Friday August the 30th, the day his 56th birthday, will be at 16:30 at the starting line of 11th Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc (UTMB)edition : called “the race of all the superlatives” since the first edition, it consists in the complete tour of the Mont Blanc Massif in semi autonomy. The race that every runner should finish at least once in their life.

The numbers: N° 2.300: the runners - N° 3 : Countries crossed France, Italy and Switzerland - N° 168 km: the distance - N° 9.600: meters rise - N° 9.600: meters drop - N° 46 hrs: maximum race time

As for Federico previous two challenges in 2011(Grand Trail Valdigne) and 2012 (Tor Des Geants), goals are the same:
- give visibility to LND Famiglie Italiane and to those unlucky friends suffering the terrible rare syndrome called Lesch Nyhan Disease
- raise funds for privately financing the research on this disease.

This year Federico, worried by the enormity of the challenge, is asking you AN ACTIVE ROLE for being motivated during his effort. Thru a special GPS device he will bring with him, for the nearly two days and two nights of the race it will be possible ANY TIME from your PC or Smartphone or Tablet to monitor LIVE his race and his position in a Google Earth map.

By sending an email to fedeutmb@lnd-it.com or thru SMS at +39.338.7953875 or thru Facebook  from now on and DURING THE RACE you are welcome to promise a donation . As an example by following the live race you can promise to donate a sum should Federico for example reach the next aid station within a certain time. Or should he complete the race in a certain number of hours.
Otherwise you can immediately make a donation thru the link http://www.lesch-nyhan.eu/en/sostieni/offerta.php stating as the reason for paying “FedeUTMB” .

Both the promise of a donation and the direct donations will be updated on the relevant counters at http://www.lesch-nyhan.eu/en/index.php homepage well before the race start and also during it.

Your generosity will encourage Federico a lot. In fact he will be regularly updated about donations and bets updated and therefore along the 40-44 hours of his severe challenge, he will have further motivation in bringing to LND as much money as possible.

Federico for sure will pass thru crisis, physical problems, sudden slowing down for cramps, difficult weather conditions often extreme in high mountain. For these reasons the risk no to arrive on time in one of the 11 tight time barriers will be dramatically constant. With the specter who knows to delay 5 minute at one of them , maybe after 150 km and 8.600 meters of drop and rises, … and being disqualified . For this reason he needs an extra help from you. From your “ virtual presence”, from your encouragement, from your betting on his performance. SO PLEASE FOLLOW THE LIVE OF THE RACE HELPING HIM TO HELP US!
