Will completing OMAN by UTMB® mean I automatically qualify for UTMB 2020 in Chamonix?

With the new qualification criteria for UTMB in Chamonix, runners completing the 100KM or 150KM distances in Oman (within the barrier time) will bypass the lottery and have a guaranteed entry for UTMB 2021. For further information about qualifying for UTMB 2021 in Chamonix please click here.

Completing the 150 and 100 KM races earn you running stones and once you have enough running stones, you can avoid the lottery on UTMB Mont-Blanc. But the rules are different from one race to another, as follows:
• UTMB: In 2021 you will need 18 running stones to register without going through the lottery (and you’ll need to have your qualifying points)

• TDS: In 2021 you will need 15 running stones to register without going through the lottery (and you’ll need to have your qualifying points)

CCC: In 2021 you will need 15 running stones to register without going through the lottery (and you’ll need to have your qualifying points)

OCC: In 2021 you will need 12 running stones to register without going through the lottery (and you’ll need to have your qualifying points)

Also note that :

• Completing JBA 2020 will give 15 running stones, so it would allow you to register to the TDS, CCC or OCC.
• Completing JBS 2020 will give 18 running stones, so it would allow you to register to the UTMB, TDS, CCC or OCC .

 

Runners will be contacted directly before the opening of UTMB Mont-Blanc registrations so they are aware of the process.
