Sometimes training hard and qualifying for an ultra is not enough. A few races receive so many applications that they cannot allow all runners to take part. There is at least two ways to deal with that. The first one is accept every runner up until the cap. This leads to having races fill up in a few hours. The second one is to select the runners with a lottery.

Lotteries for the 2013 have already started or are about to start now.
