The New Race Date of UTG 2020

Guairá, April 27th

This is a difficult situation not only for the trail running family, but also for communities around the world. That said, the Ultra-Trail® Guaraní team knows that with the necessary measures in place, we will get through this period of adversity, and come out stronger together as a result. The race has been postponed due to the advance of the COVID-19 epidemic in our country and the latest decisions taken by the government regarding this case. We sincerely apologize for all inconvenience and concerns and ask for your understanding. Below you will find detailed information on all changes:

New race date

October 10-11, 2020 is the new proposed date. This late date is necessary to give us enough time to deal with the effects of the virus, reorganization of the event and to ensure that all mobility and travel restrictions in Paraguay are lifted. Due to the Smart Quarantine Plan, arranged by the Government, outdoor events will not be able to take place until the beginning of the second semester of this year. The plan begins on May 4 and will initially extend until the first days of July. Although we are confident that the event will be able to take place, any decision of the Government, regarding COVID-19, could impede the development of the event this year.

Runners who can take part in UTG 2020 on October 10-11th, can defer their existing registration to that date. You do not need to notify us; we will do this automatically.
