UTMB® CCC® TDS® OCC 2022 Entry process

The following runners may enter the lottery for the 2022 UTMB®, CCC®, TDS® and OCC races of the UTMB® Mont-Blanc:

  • Runners who have collected Running Stones by participating in the UTWT circuit.
  • Runners who have acquired the requested qualifying points

Apart from the lottery, places will already be reserved for priority runners (solidarity bibs, volunteers, partners, elites, runners registered for the 2020 event, finishers of TDS Bourg-Saint-Maurice 2021, etc).

NB: The MCC is reserved for UTMB® volunteers, partners and local runners. A specific entry process applies to the PTL® and YCC.

Registration via lottery

Registration dates

From January 6 to 18, 2022

Runners who have collected Running Stones

What is a Running Stone?

One Running Stone will provide one entry in the lottery to participate in the UTMB®, CCC®, TDS® and OCC races at UTMB® Mont-Blanc. You can trade-in more Running Stones to improve your odds in the lottery – if you wish.

For example, if you have 9 Running Stones, your name appears 9 times in the lottery, thus tripling your odds in the lottery vs someone who only has 3 Running Stones.

See complete list of races here.

How can I enter the lottery with my Running Stones?

Running Stones are recorded on your runner's account. You may pre-register for the race of your choice and use your Running Stones stock to improve your odds in the lottery.

There is an exception for Val d'Aran by UTMB® 2021 (see details here).

NB: Only runners who have a valid UTMB® Index in the 100K or 100M category may apply to enter the UTMB® race.

If you are selected via the lottery, the Running Stones will disappear from your stock.
If you are not selected via the lottery, your Running Stones stock remains untouched and can be used for a subsequent year’s lottery.

Registration Dates 

Pre-registration: between January 6 and 18, 2022
Results of the lottery: January 26, 2022
Applicants who were selected via the lottery must confirm their registration between January 26 and February 6, 2022

NB: No registration will be accepted after the deadline.

How to register

When pre-registering, applicants will be asked to confirm their qualifying points; they will also be requested to pay by credit card a 50€ security deposit (secure online payment).

The results will be posted on January 26, 2022 at 10:00 am (Paris time) in the list of 2022 participants on our web site and on your runner’s account, and will be confirmed by email.

Runners who are selected via the lottery have 12 days, from January 26, to February 6, 2022, to finalize their registration by paying, by credit card, the balance of the entry fee. Those who do not finalize the payment of their registration will lose the possibility to participate in the race and will not be refunded their security deposit.

Runners who failed to gain entry into the race will be refunded their €50 deposit within one month from the date of pre-registration. They will benefit from no advantage for the following year’s lottery.

Runners who have the requested qualifying points

Runners who haven’t collected Running Stones may participate in the lottery if they have the requested qualifying points.

Qualifying points

Only runners who have completed some of the races included in the UTMB® list of qualifying races between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2021 may register:

  • UTMB®: 10 points acquired between 01/01/2019 and 31/12/2021 (in 2 races maximum)
  • CCC®: 6 points acquired between 01/01/2019 and 31/12/2021 (in 2 races maximum)
  • TDS®: 8 points acquired between 01/01/2019 and 31/12/2021 (in 2 races maximum)
  • OCC: 4 points acquired between 01/01/2019 and 31/12/2021 (in 2 races maximum)

Finishers of the 2018 UTMB® Mont-Blanc races may also use these races as qualifying races.

How do I enter the lottery?

Runners who have the requested qualifying points may enter the lottery for the race of their choice. They will participate in the lottery with 1 chance (their name will appear once in the lottery). The runners refused at the 2020 UTMB® Mont-Blanc lottery will participate in the 2022 draw with 2 chances (their name will appear twice in the lottery). Runners can check their priority level to register for the 2022 event on their runner account.

If you are selected, you may enter the race of your choice.

If you enter the lottery but fail to gain entry into the race of your choice, this will not improve your odds in a subsequent year’s lottery.

Group registration

It is possible to pre-register as a group (minimum 2 people, maximum 12 people per group) with your partner, friends, etc.

The only advantage of the group registration is that all members of the group get the same result in the lottery: that means, everybody is selected or nobody is selected.

The probability of being selected is the same for all runners, whether they apply individually or as a group.

The first member of the group who pre-registers must click on "Group Registration" thus obtaining a group number which has to be shared with the other members. Then, each runner of the group must log in to their own runner’s account, click on "group registration", enter the group number shared by the first member of the group and finalize the pre-registration.

A group may consist of runners pre-registered for different races. In this case, the group participates in the lottery for the race for which the percentage of chance of winning is the weakest.

NB: Group registration is only possible for runners who must enter the lottery. Runners who already benefit from having a place reserved for them cannot register as a group.

Registration Dates

Runners meeting the criteria may benefit from the above registration conditions, if they have gained the required qualifying points.

Starting in 2022, elite runners will have the opportunity to use the new UTMB® World Series to enter the UTMB® Mont-Blanc 2022.

The first 10 men and women on the UTMB® World Series Majors, as well as the first 3 men and women on the UTMB® World Series Events in each of the 50K, 100K and 100M categories, will win a place at the UTMB® Mont-Blanc. The runners concerned have to e-mail the organization (info@utmb.world) in order for their priority to be confirmed.

Runners registered in 2020

Following the cancellation of the 2020 event, runners who registered for the UTMB®, CCC®, TDS® and OCC will benefit from having a place reserved for them in the same race in either 2021, 2022 or 2023.

Those who have not used it in 2021 will be able to use it in 2022.

To use this reserved place in 2022, they will have to register between January 6 and 18, 2022. After this deadline, no registration will be taken into account, and the reserved space will be carried over to 2023. Registration will be validated by full payment of the registration fee.

Don’t forget: Runners in this case must follow the same regulations as a regular registration (qualifying points, entry fees, etc.) except that they don’t have to go through the lottery process.

Runners who wish to reserve a charity bib (solidarity/health/environment)

Runners may register for a race - without having to go through the lottery - by making a 2000€ donation  to one of the charitable associations supported by the organization (as per the current regulations). The runner may be supported by a donor/donors of their choice, private or commercial, to raise the funds. Please note that there is only a limited number of charity bibs available.

Registration for charity runners takes place from December 7 to 19, 2021.

How to register

  • Applicants need to log in to their runner’s account,  click on  "Book a solidarity/health/environment race-bib ", and chose the association they wish to support and the race they would like to participate in.
  • Once the bib is reserved, the runner has one week to make the donation to the chosen association to confirm the reservation of the race-bib.
  • The association informs the UTMB® once the payment has been processed.
  • The UTMB® then emails the runner the special registration procedure.

If the donation is not made within the deadline, the race-bib will be available for other runners to reserve it.

NB: if all the available solidarity, health and environment race bibs have been reserved, the exceeding requests for a charity race bib will be put on the waiting list.

Don’t forget: Runners who wish to apply for a charity race bib must follow the same regulations as a regular registration (qualifying points, entry fees, etc.) except that they don’t have to go through the lottery process.
The donor will under no circumstances be refunded all (or part of) the donation. When registrating for a race, the same regulations apply to all runners (including charity runners): those who wish to cancel their registration will be refunded a certain amount depending on the date of the cancellation.
