Qualifying Points For OMAN by UTMB®

The ITRA (International Trail-Running Association) evaluates the points awarded by a race according to its distance, height gain and the autonomy (aid stations vs runners being self-sufficient). According to the ITRA points awarded, the race can apply to become a UTMB qualifying race. The UTMB has the right to accept the request in order for the race to award a certain number of points, equivalent to the ITRA points.

Each runner will need to have acquired the minimum number of points (shown in the table above), achieved by finishing races between 01/01/2017 and the 01/01/2019. A list of qualifying races can be found on the UTMB website
