Madeira Island Ultra-Trail

The promoters of the UTWT said they were considering adding the Madeira Island Ultra-Trail 115k in a future edition of the series. The race has all the characteristics necessary to enter the UTWT, but doesn’t have enough participants yet. They want to present the race as a future member of the UTWT in order to raise awareness about the race. Though, the runners taking part in the 2015 edition held in April 9th will not gain points for the 2015 Ultra-Trail World Tour.
