The World Cup points rules have been modified to take account of the number of races offered.

A great mix of iconic, some new (to the World Cup) as well as very experienced race events in the 2021 edition of the World Cup All being organised to take into account COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines. 

Two iconic mountain races at Sierre-Zinal (Switzerland) and Grossglockner (Austria) are back in 2021. 

There are races that join the World Cup for the first time.  Here we have under the shadow of Mt Blanc in the French Alps La Monte’e du Nid d’Aigle join the calendar. We welcome three new events for the World Cup in the east of Europe, two of these in the Tatra Mountains of Poland (Tatra Sky Marathon and Tatra Race Run) and then the experienced Mountain event organisers at the Krkonosky half marathon in the Czech Republic.  Italy has more competitions than ever before with Lagunc in Chiavenna who will host the final race of the year in October, athletes visit southern Italy with the Trofeo Ciolo.  Nasego with many years of mountain running experience hosts two races.  The World Cup will travel to Spain for the first time in 2021 with two venues and four races. One in the Basque region (Zumaia-Gipuzkoa) where the passion for sport is always very strong and then Canfranc that is in the beautiful Pyrenean mountains.  So it’s an exciting line-up kicking off on June 20th and running through until October 10th.

The races are all open for every runner to participate and join in the World Cup competition.  The more races you run, the more points you will get towards a higher World Mountain Ranking!  WMRA would like to wish all people involved the best of health in these difficult times.
