30 elite runners for one title

The six legs in this season have delivered their verdict and now we know the names of the top 30 men and women before the Golden Trail World Series Grand Final. The world’s most talented trail runners have fought it out all year on the GTWS races and are now going to meet at the Madeira Ocean&Trails® on 26th to 30th October. An ultimate challenge consisting of 5 stages, which will enable these athletes, for the very last time, to accumulate precious points in the aim of winning this GTWS 2022.

Each stage course has been designed especially for the occasion to traverse the most beautiful trails on this magnificent Portuguese island. Each day, in addition to the daily stage ranking, the runners can try for the best times on the segments; “climb”, “downhill” or “sprint”, and at the end of the week a ranking will designate the fastest runners on these segments.

Daily prize money will be awarded for the athletes’ performance reaching a total amount of €178,500 to be distributed throughout this Grand Final.

Note that all the stages are not mandatory (an athlete can run only one stage if they wish) buteach stage can earn you up to 100 points (except the time-trial on the third stage where only half the points will be distributed), with a total of 450 points to win throughout the final.
