IT IS A RUN, IT IS NOT A RACE. And I would like reiterate the 3 key values of G5N:

1) The ability of runners to take care of themselves, regardless the adversity.
2) Respect for nature
3) Trust and Honesty

Rules

Mandatory Items: Anything you need to complete and survive in a jungle. Remember you need at least 4-5hrs for 1st loop and it will take longer progressively for subsequent loops. Think “Safety” rather than “Sorry”.

Basecamp, known as the starting/finishing point of each loop, is where you eat, sleep, cry, whine and DNF. Food and drinks are cooked by Master Chef (Julie) and they taste heavenly delicious (basically anything is after 2 loops). There are simple medical kits and no ambulance.

NO pacer/company during the run other than participants who choose to do it in group and that applies for ALL 5 loops. Trail is visibly marked and well-trodden by regular hikers, that doesn’t mean it is easy. Any path that requires you to machete your way out is probably the wrong path. Having say that, people do get lost – so practice your common sense, IF there is any left after 3rd loop inside a dark, cold, rainy and ghostly mountain.

UTMB 3 Point by completion.

Loop Cut-off. Yes, there is “reasonable” cut-off for each loop and the whole run.

1st loop: 5hrs
2nd loop: 6hrs
3rd loop: 7hrs
4th loop: 8hrs
5th loop: 7hrs
