Born in 2014 from the inspiration of Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc (UTMB) and a few other major races, the Ultra-Trail® World Tour (UTWT) is now recognized as the global series for long distance trail running races, with distances over or equal to 100 km. The UTWT has become a series, bringing together 28 major races organized in some of the most iconic places from all continents.
The UTWT has been built on the key principle that each race is independent, having its own characteristics and being strongly embedded in its territory. But while being fundamentally different, the UTWT races share common values – ethics, equality in sports, self-respect, respect for others and for the environment – which they are proud to promote.
Taking part in the UTWT races is an opportunity for both elite athletes and regular runners, to enjoy the diversity of trail running, to discover new cultures and to create new sporting experiences.
Now north Europe has joined the UTWT family with Kullamannen Sweden as its front figure!
Welcome to a world of ultra trail running experiences!
