At UTMB® World Series, we believe that sport is a force for good, and the UTMB® brand connects people all over the world through shared values of solidarity, inclusion, and fairness.

Considering the ongoing situation in Ukraine caused by the unprovoked Russian invasion, the UTMB® World Series, and the events under UTMB® brand, is committed to supporting our friends in Ukraine during this period.

In light of this, we’re releasing 20 additional charity bibs* for La Sportiva Lavaredo Ultra Trail 2022 by UTMB® to aid causes that directly support the Ukrainian people. We've chosen to work with the Red Cross and UNHCR, two well-known organisations that carry out incredible humanitarian work in emergency situations, and the GivenGain Foundation, a non-profit online fundraising platform that helps event participants to support the charities they care about.

By committing to raise a minimum of 1000 EUR for UNHCR or the Red Cross on GivenGain, you’ll be able to secure your place in the La Sportiva Lavaredo Ultra Trail 2022 by UTMB® even if it’s sold out.
