Boosts Prize Money to Support Professional Athletes in Achieving Sustainable Livelihoods

As part of its ongoing commitment to the sport, UTMB Group is proud to provide enhanced support to elite trail runners via the new HOKA Prize Purse. This new investment will support all athletes who juggle demanding training regimes, along with professional careers. The HOKA Prize Purse will help facilitate athlete’s journeys towards earning a sustainable livelihood and aims to elevate the rewards and recognition available to all competitors.

The increase in prize money allocation reflects global UTMB Group's unwavering commitment to gender equality and parity across distances:

Gender Parity: UTMB World Series continues to be committed to ensuring gender parity, which is reflected in the distribution of prize money. Both male and female athletes will receive equal amounts on both Finals and Majors.

Equal Recognition: UTMB®, the iconic original 171km race with 10,000m of elevation gain, now serving as the Final for the 100M category, offers a higher prize money compared to other finals, with male and female winners each receiving 20,000 euros. UTMB World Series recognizes the outstanding performances of every athlete, regardless of the distance they cover. Crossing the finish line of a 50K, a 100K, or a 100M showcases athletes with different skill sets, yet united by the same remarkable perseverance. UTMB World Series aims to commend every athlete on an equal footing, acknowledging that even shorter distances require the same level of dedication and challenge.

Set to be introduced at UTMB World Series, the new HOKA Prize Purse will provide increased prize money for both the Majors and Finals of the circuit:
