UTMB Index FAQ
The UTMB Index is the orginal trail scoring system. It allows runners to demonstrate their experince at different distances and compare their level of performance.
The UTMB Index is the weighted average of your best races. A runner who has multiple consistent results will have a UTMB Index higher than a runner who has achieved that score one time. The formula is designed to give favor to runners who have shown consistency over multiple races while at the same time not penalizing a runner if they have a below normal performance.
The same rules and calculation is used for EVERYONE, we do not apply different rules to different people.
The conditions and terrain are constantly changing, it is impossible to compare to races. The UTMB Index calculation has been built off the results of more than 25,000 results to give an accurate score of the race.
The UTMB Index is the orginal scoring system for your trail races. It is not possible to compare your score on UTMB,world with other sites as they are all using a different calculation.
