Ultra Trail World Tour

aaa

Created in 2014, the Ultra-Trail World Tour is a prestigious long-distance (more than 100 km) trail race-circuit, in diverse technical terrain and with different levels of difficulty. Conceived as an international circuit, it is a series of events which serve as a reference model in five continents. In the 2017 season it will be present in 16 countries all around the world.

Held in collaboration with ITRA (International Trail Running Association), its steady growth is attributable to one of its main objectives: to ensure better geographical coverage and to improve access to the circuit.

Running an Ultra-Trail World Tour race means joining and forming part of an exclusive club:

  • The finishers. From beginning to end, everyone is important and stars in their own sports stories which combine their self-demanding attitude, emotion, and the satisfaction of crossing the finish line.
  • The elite runners. The Ultra-Trail World Tour allows the meeting of incredible runners. Champions who deserve fame and to be known for their performances; they are an authentic inspiration for runners all over the world!

Scoring system

With the incorporation of new races, the Ultra-Trail World Tour has presented a new scoring system based on the following criteria:

 

  • Ranking is open to all the runners.
  • The races are classified into four categories with fixed scores based on the runner’s ranking.
  • Completion of a minimum of two races is required to access the annual classification.
  • The world ranking is produced taking into account the runner’s five best results within a period of three years.
UTWT in Spain

Penyagolosa Trails Sport HG joins the Ultra-Trail World Tour in 2017. It will be only the second race in Spain, after the Transgrancanaria HG, and will be the only challenge located on the peninsula. This will be a fantastic opportunity to reinforce international awareness of the event, media coverage of Penyagolosa Trails as a race, and Castellon as a sporting backdrop.
