UTWT Virtual Club


Ultra-trail World Tour organizes the project, some Virtual Races for trail runners from all over the world.

UTWT Virtual Club offers a series of Virtual Races on an original digital platform created for trail running. Entry into these Virtual Races is free.

Virtual Races overview

Runners can take part in the Virtual Races wherever they are, using their own tracking tool. They will then upload their activities or GPX tracks on the official platform and find their results there.

Liability and Insurance

You are responsible for your own race and GPS / tracking system.

This is not an official competition, it is a virtual, individual and free operation. Consequently, all runners participate under their own responsibility. Physical activity requires good training and all participants declare that they are healthy and fit for the challenge. By subscribing to the operation, you expressly agree to participate under your own responsibility. You expressly agree to release the organization from any and all liability in connection with your athletic activities and you also agree that in no event shall the organization be liable to you or any third party for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages arising out of or in any way connected with the UTWT Virtual Club.

Sporting rules

  • The platform takes into consideration the kilometer-effort: for any gain of 100m in elevation, one kilometer is added to the distance of the route.

    For example:
    A distance of 170km and 1000m of D+, will count for 170 + 10 = 180 km/effort
    A distance of 80km and 6000m of D+, will count for 80 + 60 = 140km/effort.
  • The Virtual Race must be completed by walking/running (max speed of 22 km/h max) and outdoors.
  • The Virtual Race can be completed over several runs or in one go.


  • The ranking is calculated on the overall timing on the basis of the GPX tracks provided between the first run (start) and the last run (finish). Thus, runners who choose to complete the Virtual Race in one single run will be ahead of those who have completed the it in several runs.
  • In the event of a tie, the activity time (= time in motion) will be taken into consideration.
