PREPARING MY 2021 SEASON TO GET READY FOR THE 2022 UTMB® MONT-BLANC
The following runners may enter the lottery for the 2022 UTMB®, CCC®, TDS® and OCC races of the UTMB® Mont-Blanc:
- Runners who have collected Running Stones by participating in the UTWT circuit.
- Runners who have acquired the requested qualifying points
NB: some of the places at the 2022 UTMB® Mont-Blanc are reserved for runners registered for the 2020 event and runners not selected in the 2019 and 2020 lottery for the same race.
NB: The MCC is reserved for UTMB® volunteers, partners and local runners. A specific entry process applies to the PTL® and YCC.
What is a Running Stone?
One Running Stone will provide one entry in the lottery to participate in the UTMB®, CCC®, TDS® and OCC races at UTMB® Mont-Blanc. You can trade-in more Running Stones to improve your odds in the lottery – if you wish.
For example, if you have 9 Running Stones, your name appears 9 times in the lottery, thus tripling your odds in the lottery vs someone who only has 3 Running Stones.
How do I collect Running Stones?
" by UTMB® " Races
9 Running Stones will be awarded to all finishers of a 50+ km "by UTMB®" race*.
(*) Attention there is an exception for Val d'Aran by UTMB® 2021 (see details here).
3 Running Stone will be awarded to all finishers of a 50+ km UTWT race.
MCC finishers will collect 3 Running Stone.
How can I enter the lottery with my Running Stones?
Running Stones are recorded on your runner's account. You may pre-register for the race of your choice and use your Running Stones stock to improve your odds in the lottery.
NB: Only runners who have completed one or more 100+ km races awarding Running Stones may apply to enter the UTMB® race.
If you are selected via the lottery, the Running Stones will disappear from your stock.
If you are not selected via the lottery, your Running Stones stock remains untouched and can be used for a subsequent year’s lottery.
Special consideration - runners who have collected Running Stones in 2020
If you don’t use your Running Stones in 2021, you may use them for 2022 registration. In that scenario, your 2020 Running Stones will be converted as follows:
- You will get 9 Running Stones for each 2020 "by UTMB®" completed race.
- You will get 3 Running Stone for each 2020 UTWT completed race.
Runners who have the requested qualifying points
Runners who haven’t collected Running Stones may participate in the lottery if they have the requested qualifying points.
Only runners who have completed some of the races included in the UTMB® list of qualifying races between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2021 may register:
- UTMB®: 10 points acquired between 01/01/2019 and 31/12/2021 (in 2 races maximum)
- CCC®: 6 points acquired between 01/01/2019 and 31/12/2021 (in 2 races maximum)
- TDS®: 8 points acquired between 01/01/2019 and 31/12/2021 (in 2 races maximum)
- OCC: 4 points acquired between 01/01/2019 and 31/12/2021 (in 2 races maximum)
How do I enter the lottery?
Runners who have the requested qualifying points may enter the lottery for the race of their choice. They will participate in the lottery with 1 chance (their name will appear once in the lottery).
If you are selected, you may enter the race of your choice.
If you enter the lottery but fail to gain entry into the race of your choice, this will not improve your odds in a subsequent year’s lottery.
