Coronavirus COVID-19 – Latest update

 

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the world of sport on a global scale, we are now beginning to see certain measures easing. We bring you the latest update regarding the upcoming events of the Ultra-Trail® World Tour 2020 circuit:

– The TDS®, originally scheduled for the 25th August, has been cancelled.

– The CCC®, originally scheduled for the 28th August, has been cancelled.

– The UTMB®, originally scheduled for the 28th August, has been cancelled.

– The Harricana Ultra-Trail®, in Canada, originally scheduled for the 13th September, is maintained

– The Ultra-Trail® Ninghai, in China, originally scheduled for the 17th October, will go ahead as planned*.

*The number of participants in the UTNH (108km) must be controlled within 400. Only local Chinese runners will be allowed, and participants must take anti-epidemic measures.

– Oman by UTMB®,  originally scheduled for the 3rd December, has been cancelled.

There will be no sports championship for 2020

 

In light of this global health crisis that continues to evolve, the Ultra-Trail® World Tour has, in consultation with the Race Director Council, made the decision not to award a championship title in 2020. The sporting competition as embodied by the Ultra-Trail® World Tour, which brings together the most emblematic and prestigious long-distance trail running races in the world, cannot take place as usual in the context of the COVID-19 crisis because of the cancellation of 13 events since the pandemic and upholding fairness among the athletes.

The Ultra-Trail® World Tour team wishes to take this opportunity to express again its full support to all the race organizers, athletes and the trail-running family at large, who have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis in one way or another.
