Ultra-Trail Snowdonia To Be UK’s First UTMB® World Series Trail Running Event

Ultra Trail Snowdonia

Ultra-Trail Snowdonia by UTMB® will become the first-ever UTMB® World Series trail running event in the UK!

UTMB® World Series events are the only place where athletes can collect Running Stones for use in the UTMB® Mont-Blanc registration lottery for 2023 onwards. Only one Running Stone is needed to enter the lottery.

Already, UTS is notorious as an event with some of the, if not the most challenging race routes in Europe, justly earning it the strapline ‘Beautiful beyond belief. Savage beyond reason’. A very worthy host location for a UTMB® World Series event indeed!

UTS Race Director Michael Jones said“Heavily inspired by UTMB itself, when I launched UTS in 2017, my ambition for the event was to host a truly alpine-scale mountain ultra, with an international profile, here in the UK… Four years later, I’m very excited to continue this trajectory by joining the new UTMB World Series alongside many other high-profile, emblematic events. I look forward to welcoming the international trail running community to Snowdonia next July, to experience our unique mountains, trails and culture.” 

Ultra-Trail Snowdonia by UTMB® joins a list of 20 confirmed events for 2022. More details on the Ultrarunner.com

I believe ultrarunning can be and is, for many people, a transformative experience. I hope to inspire and encourage runners from all levels of abilities to stretch themselves and discover what they truly are capable of achieving in the running world. To that end we produce a free online magazine, Ultrarunning World, from material produced mostly by ultrarunners from around the globe offering insight and experience from all kinds of ultras and multidays.
