Injury Policy

If an athlete becomes injured after registering to the UTMB World Series Finals, they can defer their priority to the next UTMB World Series Finals by contacting the Elite Athlete Service team explaining their situation and providing the required documentation. Only runners that have completed their registration for the 2024 event are able to request a priority deferral for the 2025 edition. This is a deferral of the priority only and is not a transfer of registration. Runners will need to cancel their 2024 registration and complete a new registration for the 2025 event, reimbursement will only be possible in accordance with the cancellation insurance (Terms and Conditions here)

A runner who gets injured before or during the qualification period and cannot qualify in the year before the finals can apply to qualify in the first part of the following year with a limit of June 30. The application must be submitted to the Elites team before registrations by the end of November.
If the athlete qualifies for that year's UTMB World Series Finals during this extension period, it will only count for the upcoming finals and will not count as a double qualification for the following year's finals. This only applies to runners who, in the past 2 years, have obtained a UTMB Score equal to or above:

50K 100K 100M
Women 680 660 600

UTMB Score Explained

The UTMB score is the number awarded to each finisher of a UTMB World Series Final, Major, Event race or UTMB Index race in the 20K, 50K, 100K and 100M categories depending on performance (boxed in blue in the image on the right). The UTMB Index is established by taking into account the 5 best scores (boxed in red in the image on the right).

Example: For example, Blandine L'Hirondel got a UTMb Score of 797 when she won the CCC in 2022. Her overall UTMB Index is 810.

The aim of developing this system is to allow you to know at the end of your race if you are qualified for the UTMB World Series Finals. This system replaces the current "second chance" selection:
