The Trail Running Film Festival - Back on Tour for 2024.

Today UTMB announced a new event in South America: Quito Trail in Ecuador. Based on the press release this seems to be a newly created event, not an event taken over by the Ironman/UTMB Group. Quito Trail is the first UTMB event for the country of Ecuador and the fourth event in Latin America. UTMB promotes this event to be hosted in or close to a UNESCO world heritage site which makes me curious if this is one of their strategies in finding locations for races or if this is just marketing filler language.

Another thing to note is that very few of the newly added or created events on the calendar are offering the full 100 mile option. Many events longest distance is around 100K.

The ECC UTMB Events Calendar is updated to reflect this new addition to the 2024 calendar. To be honest when I set out publish this calendar I had no idea how many changes and constant updates I would have to make. It’s kind of fun to watch the calendar grow and evolve and keep close tabs on when and how new events are being announced. When you scroll down on the calendar page you can see the full change log with details of what was added/changed and when.
