Remuneration for the UTMB® athletes: fair recognition
After having carried out a survey involving the 260 athletes who benefitted from the elite registration which was set up in 2016*, the UTMB®'s organization has decided to consecrate part of its budget in recognition of the high caliber athletes by installing, as from 2018, a system of remuneration for 4 races (UTMB®, TDS®, CCC®, OCC). It is in recognition of a virtuous circle between the athletes and the event, the exchange of visibility in which both stakeholders participate in making the event a success.
95% of the athletes who participated in this questionnaire are in favor of a system of remuneration, and for all the UTMB® races. The UTMB® has chosen to give the same recognition to men and women. A reminder that elite athletes are invited to the event if they fulfill the invitation criteria.
*NB international elite registration: In order to be fair in the acknowledgement of high caliber athletes, the organization's team reserves places for elite runners according to precise criteria and based on their general ITRA performance index. In 2018 the criteria are as follow:
