Priority Registration is a 48-hour window of time immediately before Eiger Ultra Trail by UTMB's general registration opens, where exclusive groups are invited to register early.
The benefits of early registration are:
A limited number of race entries are available during the priority registration period, with a portion of entries reserved for general opening. This means priority registrations may sell out during the priority registration window, so it is first come first served! If the priority allocation sells out, please try again during general registration opening.
Runners holding a valid UTMB Index will be offered access to registration during the priority registration period.
The priority registration window is open for 48 hours before general registration opening. Please note that priority registration places are limited, so they may sell out during the priority registration window! If the priority allocation sells out, please try again during general registration opening.
The UTMB index is a formula developed by the UTMB World Series designed to assess the performance level of trail runners globally, based on their results from taking part in UTMB World Series events and UTMB Index races. View it here: UTMB Index.

There are two main reasons why your results may not show:
Your race is not a UTMB World Series Event and/or UTMB Index race. Please check the race calendar) to see if it is registered as a UTMB Index race. If the race does not feature in the list then you will need to contact the race organiser and ask them to register as a UTMB Index race. This is free for event organizers to do and only takes a few minutes on utmb.world.
If the race is a UTMB World Series Event and/or UTMB Index race but no results are published, it is because we have not yet received the results from the race organizer. We will publish the results as soon as we receive them.
There might be a different spelling that prevents the system to attach your result to your profile. Use the tool ‘Claim your results’ to have your UTMB Index updated. We are checking the requests daily.
If the results are uploaded and your result has not been attached to your profile, there is an error in the information provided in your result. This has resulted in a new profile being created or the result being allocated to another runner. Possible reasons include an error in the spelling of your name / date of birth / nationality. If this is the case, please contact us by email at email@example.com, providing as much information as possible to help us resolve the issue.
In order to register during priority registration, you need to have a My UTMB account. You can create it while registering or simply log in if you created it previously.
