    Not sure if anyone would know the answer to this; when you enter the draw for a place in the various UTMB races, does exceeding the minimum point total give you more chance of obtaining a place, with your application perhaps being seen to have more ‘merit’ as it were, or is it instead a case of everybody who meets the minimum standard being put into a hat and then it’s purely a matter of chance?

    I suspect it's the latter, Dave.

    I think the latter, otherwise there would be people doing all events possible to get huge numbers of points. I only have 6 points, despite doing BG X 2, Ramsay and Paddy B.

    Re: UTMB etc 2012

    Is there a list of UK races which count towards one's points total? I had a quick look at the UTMB web-site and it didn't seem to show which events count; only confirm the number of points if you put in a race that's a counter

    EDIT:

    I found this

    I was about to post the full list, but they seem to have switched over to a search type proposition instead:

    http://www.ultratrailmb.com/page/87/...ing_races.html

    The full list was getting rather unmanageable mind.

    Just tested the search function and it does produce answers.

    The more helpful thing is that the on-line entry form often recognises names and brings up the associated qualifying data automatically.

    The UK "list" has grown quite considerably in recent years.
