With the opening of registrations for the second edition of Heroes Ultra just around the corner, we wanted to share once more the race qualification criteria with all athletes interested in participating in the 2017 event.

Nothing much has changed from the first edition of the race. Applicants will still need a finish in a race longer than 80 km in the past 3 years inside a finish time commensurate with the difficulty of the qualifying race. Once more for 2017 we are using a qualification system that can accommodate any race with any combination of distance and elevation gain. Obviously, finishers of the 2016 race automatically qualify.
