UTMB® CCC® TDS® OCC Entry process

2021 UTMB® CCC® TDS® OCC Entry process

Overview

Entry process into the UTMB®, CCC®, TDS® and OCC races of the UTMB® Mont-Blanc may vary depending on the runner's advantage.

In any case, the runner must 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, 2018 and December 31, 2020 may register: click here to read the regulations concerning the 2021 UTMB® qualifying races.

  • UTMB® : 10 points collected between 01/01/2018 and 31/12/2020 (in 2 races maximum)
  • CCC® : 6 points collected between 01/01/2018 and 31/12/2020 (in 2 races maximum)
  • TDS® : 8 points collected between 01/01/2018 and 31/12/2020 (in 2 races maximum)
  • OCC: 4 points collected between 01/01/2018 and 31/12/2020 (in 2 races maximum)

 

Finishers of the 2017 UTMB® Mont-Blanc races may also use these races as qualifying races.

The qualifying races used by runners to finalize their registration are verified through the official race results.

Any inaccurate or false declaration regarding the qualifying races allows the organization to cancel the runner’s registration without refunding the entry fee.

 

Terms & Conditions and Registration dates

I was registered in 2020
I was not selected in the 2019 and 2020 lottery for the same race
I collected Running Stones in 2020
I 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 bibs is open from January 7 to January 28, 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. Runners on the waiting list will likely be contacted by the organization between February 4 and 14, 2021.

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.

I am an elite runner
I was not selected in the 2020 lottery only
Other - I do not fit into any of the above categories
 

Special consideration

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.

Runner’s Commitment

When registering, each runner undertakes the following commitments:

  • I declare that I have read and understood the rules and ethics of the race.
  • I understand and agree to the terms and conditions of participation as per the regulations
  • I undertake to respect the rules.
  • I am committed to scrupulously respecting the ethics of the event and promoting them.
  • I declare to be aware of any medical condition which could concern me and, consequently, I relieve the organization of any responsibility for any medical problem which may arise during the event due my negligence.
  • I have read and understood that in the case of inaccurate or false declaration concerning the qualifying races, the organization reserves the right to cancel my registration without refunding the entry fee.
