To qualify for the 2024 World Championships you will need 10 points gained from Ultra X races.
5 stage race = 5 points
2 stage race = 3 points
100km race = 2 points
50km race = 1 point
No points are awarded for non ultra-distance races. E.g Spring Trail Series Half Marathon event.
A podium finish within an age category = points multiplier x 3. E.G If you come 2nd in your age category at Ultra X 125 Azores you will have earned 9 points (3 points x 3). This will leave you 1 point short of WC qualification.
Black ribbon finishers = points multiplier x 3 (this cannot be used in conjunction with a podium finish).
Green ribbon finishers = points multiplier *2 (this cannot be used in conjunction with a podium finish)
Every World Championship cycle you will lose 50% of your points.
First placed competitors within their category will have 30 days to enter the World Championships after their race. If not claimed within the 30 days, the place will roll down until it is claimed.
Other ways to qualify:
Elite Entry: There are 100 places available for elite athletes with a minimum ITRA Performance Index of 600 for Women and 725 for Men
