Thanks for this, I forwarded it to a couple of friends who have their sights set on UTMB but realize that it will take a couple of years of qualifying and lotteries, so it would be good to have something to look forward to in the meantime.
It is worth 3 UTMB points so it can be part of their qualification as well as their training for running in the Alps!
No surprise, registration is closed at the moment for the 101K distance since they already got 500 entrants. On Wednesday, they'll re-open registration for the lottery for the final 100 spots. It is still possible to enter the 51K race, which is worth 1 UTMB point, but they are planning a lottery for its final 100 spots as well.
