An overview on the Ultra-Trail® World Tour Rankings

An overview on the Ultra-Trail® World Tour Rankings


Are you interested by the UTWT competition? Want to learn more about the favorites of the UTWT? At the start of the season and after two UTWT member races, it’s time to have a look the Ultra-Trail® World Tour World Ranking and the UTWT Annual Ranking.


What are the differences between the UTWT World Ranking and the UTWT Annual Ranking?


In 2017, a new ranking was created for Ultra-Trail® World Tour: the UTWT World Ranking. In a long-term logic, the best 5 results within a 3-year period are taken into account for the World Ranking.

The UTWT Annual Ranking considers the best 2 results of a runner over the season. It starts for the 1st race of the year and finishes at the end of the calendar year.


How do you calculate points of the UTWT Rankings?


The points for a runner depend on his races ranking and on the races categories.

Trends for the UTWT World Ranking:


On the men side:

At the moment, Gediminas Grinius is the first of the UTWT World Ranking with 4745 points. François d’Haene and Didrik Hermansen are second and third.

The Norwegian could take the lead of the World Ranking if he wins Transgrancanaria HG in Spain. Thanks to this race, Pau Capell could enter the TOP 10 of this ranking whereas Antoine Guillon and Julien Chorier could continue to move on.

Interesting to see!


On the women side:

Nathalie Mauclair is at the moment the leader of the UTWT World Ranking ahead of Caroline Chaverot and Nuria Picas-Albets, respectively second and third.

Caroline Chaverot and Andrea Huser (4th at the UTWT World Ranking) will take part to Transgrancanaria HG and are very close in the World Ranking. The competition will be intense between the two athletes.

The 2017 UTWT Annual Ranking:


For now, Christian Warren is the only runner to have finished the first two races of the UTWT season (Vibram Hong Kong 100 and Tarawera Ultramarathon) and he is logically the first to integrate the 2017 UTWT Annual Ranking.

After the Transgrancanaria HG, the Annual Ranking should progressively take shape. But who will be the first? Didrik Hermansen, Daniel Jung, Julien Chorier…?

Everything is possible in sport.
