The Western States Endurance Run is proud to be part of the Ultra-Trail World Tour (UTWT).
For 2015 we have reserved six spots for elite athletes from outside North America to gain entry into Western States. Qualified elite athletes should contact UTWT. Please note that runners who gain entry into WS via UTWT must pay the entry fee just like every other runner in the race.
See our news post from November 2013 announcing our participation in UTWT.
