Maryline, an elite trail runner with an impressive track record (French champion ultra-trail, World Team Champion, 1st Ecotrail 2019…), came the first time to UTAT in 2019. She won the Challenge de l’Atlas, discovering the Atlas range and the local culture, amazed by the wonders of the territory.  She was back in 2022 and won the Challenge again.

The relationship between Maryline and the UTAT team naturally developed, and she became our ambassador to the elite runners.

Maryline works with the organization to welcome the top runners in the best possible conditions and is their main contact to facilitate their participation and preparation to come and discover all the race and the Atlas range has to offer.


Seb is our ambassador in the Pays du Mont Blanc area. Together we share the same convictions on the spirit of trail running and have the same passion for technical mountain tracks! He lives and works in Sallanches, enjoying a variety of mountain sports, from skiing in all its forms, to trail running and biking – he truly takes advantage of the playground the Pays du Mont Blanc offers!

We met Seb when he participated in the UTAT in 2013, the Challenge de l’Atlas, and finished 3rd, a beautiful encounter. Since then, we have remained in contact, and he came back in 2016 to take part in the ultra, where he finished 7th – hats off!  Even more, Seb was back in 2022 and finished 4th of the Ultra Trail Atlas Toubkal.

His passion for trail running is expressed through his professional experience and personal practice. Today he is co-founder and manager of the shop Le Talon d’Achille in Sallanches. This passion for running in the mountains is something he shares through the shop and all the activities he organizes for his customers.

Don’t hesitate to stop by or to participate in one of the activities organized for the customers. We are happy and honored to count him among our ambassadors.

If you wish to benefit from his feedback and advice, always very knowledgeable, please send a text message to +33 6 80 88 52 88 or an email at sebastien.utat@atlas-trail.com.




Paulo is our UTAT ambassador in Portugal.

He is the perfect contact for Portuguese-speaking racers and media.

Paolo’s efficiency is such, that for 2 years, Portugal was the second nation in numbers amongst the participants at the UTAT!

He has taken part in all the different races – Challenge de l’Atlas, Virée d’Iskiss,… He knows every single stone on the paths. His love for Morocco and the Atlas range knows no boundaries, the result is that most of the Portuguese racers ask him to add options to their stay. It’s actually thanks to him that we have added an option with an ascent of the Toubkal ( 4 167 m) in our offer.

Thanks to his work and his excellent network the event has a very good reputation in Portugal,

Paulo, thanks to your efforts we now welcome your friendly and smiling compatriots at the UTAT base camp!
