AGE-GROUP RANKINGS & MILE POINT QUALIFYING SYSTEM
Starting in 2023, qualifying for the One Hundred® Ultra Trail Endurance World Championship Final will be a fairly straightforward process. The road to Gran Sasso can take one of three paths:
- Earn a slot at one of the full-distance qualifiers held around the world by winning, or by placing high within your age group.
- Race a minimum of 10 OneHundred® races for a chance at a “legacy” slot.
- Be invited into the race, as is the case of celebrities, ambassadors, or the Physically Challenged Lottery (PCL).
The first year will be fully open. Enjoy the opportunity!
AGE-GROUP RANKINGS, POWERED BY ACTIVE MILE POINTS
Each year, athletes generate mile points based on their performance at each race. At the end of the year, One Hundred® identifies those who have finished in the top 10 percent of their respective age group.
Under 29 years old
30 to 39 years old
40 to 49 years old
50 to 59 years old
Over 60 years old
ATHLETES CAN ACHIEVE THE ONE HUNDRED® ELITE STATUS BY PARTICIPATING IN THE 100 MILES, 100 KM, AND 200 MILES CATEGORIES.
Mile points can be earned in any One Hundred® Ultra Trail Endurance World Championship qualifying races, as well as the finale.
There are three levels of One Hundred® Elite status:
Gold. Top 5 percent.
Silver. Top 10 percent.
Bronze. Top 15 percent.
1 - As long as athletes complete one 100-mile, 100km, or 200-mile race, they can also receive points for other One Hundred® events, such as special stage and/or others to be introduced in the future.
2 - When there are not sufficient runners in a given age group to calculate percentages, runners will be ranked for Elite Status following the replacement rule below:
- Top 5 runners will be ranked Elite Gold for that particular age group.
- Top 6-10 runners are Elite Silver for that particular age group.
- Top 11-15 runners are Elite Bronze for that particular age group.
ATHLETES MAY RANK IN THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES:
Overall AGR. Measures the athlete’s performance in both 100-mile, 100km, and 200-mile races. As long as one 100-mile, 100km, or 200-mile race is completed, all other events will count in the overall category.
OneHundred® 100-mile AGR. Scores only full-distance 100-mile races.
OneHundred® 100km AGR. Scores only 100km races.
OneHundred® 200-mile AGR. Scores only 200-mile races.
HOW IT WORKS:
AGR mile points are calculated based on the athlete’s finish time behind the first finisher in their age group. Mile points continuously drop as the race duration increases until the points reach a “point floor” where they cannot drop any further.
An athlete’s mile points add up over the course of the calendar year. Although athletes can compete in as many 100-mile, 100km, or 200-mile races as they want, and in all other events of their choosing, on December 31st of each year, only their highest three AGR point totals will count towards their Elite status.
Points are allocated to each race distance and calculated based on the athlete’s finish time behind their age group’s official first
Additionally, for the 200-mile distance, the maximum mile points are 200 and the minimum mile points are 80. The decline rate is 1 mile point per 20 minutes and the time to floor is 30 hours.
Athletes can track their progress and rankings throughout the year on the One Hundred® website. The top athletes in each age group and category will receive special recognition and rewards, including automatic qualification for the Ultra Trail Endurance World Championship.
The One Hundred® Age-Group Rankings and Mile Point Qualifying System is designed to promote fair competition and provide athletes with a clear path to success. It's also a great way for runners to challenge themselves and set goals for the year ahead.
