2016/17 Race Series Dates: April 29th, 2016 - April 30th, 2017

Competition loves company. That’s why UltraRunning created a new race series that scores every runner in every ultra for 12 months and ranks them by distance, age group, and gender across each region in the US and Canada. If you've raced since April 29th, you’re already entered. But it’s more than just bragging rights. We’ll be giving away prizes to the top runner in each category – 146 winners total – with the top male and female leaders in the overall standings winning entries for the 2017 Western States 100.

How it Works

The UltraRunning Race Series utilizes a formula that considers many factors in scoring the performance of every ultrarunner in every ultra race in North America.

It takes the top performance of every ultrarunner at each of the four classic ultra race distances – 100 miles, 100k, 50 miles and 50k – and adds them up for the full year. Scoring for this year commenced on April 30th, 2016 and will finish April 30th, 2017.

Standings are generated for all of North America, and for each of eight United States Regions plus Canada.

In addition to overall standings, standings are also generated for each of seven age groups and both genders – thereby creating 146 different competitive groupings for the series.

The top male and female overall leaders as of April 30, 2017 will earn entry into the sport's most iconic race – the Western States 100 on June 25, 2017 – where they can race alongside the most elite field in the sport.

Winners of the Regional age group/gender categories will receive special recognition in UltraRunning Magazine, as well as some ultra SWAG from Race Series Sponsors.
