In 2020, France recorded 1,200 fewer grafts due to the health crisis.

Since the beginning of its history, the UTMB® has always wanted to combine the energy of the event with a spirit of solidarity.

The race has therefore developed several schemes to raise funds for partner charities. Runners can support one of the partner associations by making a donation of €2,000, paid directly or through patrons (individuals or private individuals).

For the runner, it is the possibility of guaranteeing his or her registration for one of the races (in compliance with the regulations in force).

The Fondation de l’Académie de Médecine has for several years hosted and supported the actions carried out by the Greffe de Vie foundation, dedicated to organ donations.

So do like Loïc, Eric, Jocelyne, Vincent, Virginie, Patrick, Jean-Marc, Nicolas, Sébastien, Anthony, Thierry, Anthony and Frédéric who supported us in 2020!

Supporting us means supporting the cause of organ donation and fighting for better access to health for all.

Practical information

For the runner, taking a solidarity bib means guaranteeing his or her registration for one of the races by making a donation of €2,000 directly to one of the associations supported by the organisation (in compliance with the regulations in force). The runner can be supported by the company(ies) or person(s) of his/her choice to raise the sum. Its donors, companies or individuals, will receive a tax receipt allowing them to obtain a tax deduction of 60% for companies and 66% for individuals.

Registration via a solidarity bib will take place between 7 and 28 January 2021.

Registration procedure

• The runner goes to his runner’s space and clicks on “Reserve a solidarity/health/environment bib”, then chooses the association he wants to support as well as the race he wants to run in.

• The association sends to the runner a link for making the fonation.

• After reserving his race number, the donor then has one week to make a donation of €2,000 to the chosen association in one go to confirm the reservation of the race number.

• The association notifies the UTMB® once the payment has been made.

• The UTMB® then contacts the runner to give him/her the special registration procedure.

In the event that the donation is not made within the time limit, the race number will be put back into play.

NB: if the maximum quota of solidarity bibs is reached, additional bookings will be put on the waiting list. Runners on the waiting list may be contacted by the organisation between 4 and 14 February.

Important : A registration via a solidarity/health/environment bib is subject to the same rules as a normal registration (qualifying points, registration fee, etc…) with the difference that the runner does not go through the draw (see race regulation).

Under no circumstances will the donor be able to recover all or part of his donation. From the moment the runner registers, he is subject to the same race rules as all the others including if he cancels his registration, he will be reimbursed a variable amount depending on the date of cancellation.
