Due to covid-19 global crisis, most of the 6 qualifying races to the Golden Trail Series have been cancelled, therefore we were forced to cancel the Golden Trail World Series in 2020.
We adapted ourselves to the situation and set up the Golden Trail World Championship (GTWC)
The GTWC is a 4-day stage race taking place in the Azores at the end of October 2020. The Golden Trail Champion will be the runner with the lowest cumulated time at the end of the 4 stages.
Everyone can participate in the competition when covering the costs and getting a race bib in the lottery but we are also offering 76 golden tickets in more than 20 countries. Golden tickets offer free race bib+accommodation meals+flights.
The top 11 of the GTWS 2019 and the runners who won their ticket for the GTWS 2020 on one of the GTNS 2019 + the TOP 3 M&W of the GTNS FRANCE 2020 get a golden pass (a golden pass is an automatic golden ticket)
The 76 golden tickets are shared over different races or Strava segments in more than 20 countries.
The Golden Segments on Strava will be open from July 1st till October 1st.
One overall female and one overall male for each segment will receive a golden ticket.
A golden ticket provides the runner: free race bib, flights*, accommodation & meals at Azores Faial Garden resort for the Golden Trail World Championships! Of course, the plans currently in motion are based on the condition that governments authorize trail running races beginning in September and international travel restrictions are been lifted before October.
