Val d’Aran by UTMB® will be one of the five events of the “by UTMB®” family, joining other iconic and touristic destinations which are particularly appealing for trail runners keen to explore the world: UTMB® Mont-Blanc, Gaoligong by UTMB®, Omán by UTMB® and Thailand by UTMB®.
As in all “by UTMB®” events, finishers of Val d’Aran by UTMB® will be able to collect, since first edition, “Running Stones” and ITRA points to get a direct entry for UTMB® Mont-Blanc without need of raffle.
As long as runners have the enough ITRA points and Running Stones, they will be able to enter the UTMB® Mont-Blanc race of their choice. Running Stones accumulated will be valid for a two-year period, which means that runners who collect them in 2021 can access UTMB® Mont-Blanc 2022 or 2023 races. If they aren’t used within this period, these will get lost unless the participant would have turn them on time into a lottery ticket.
