Slovak Ultratrail League (original name: Slovenská Ultratrailová Liga) is a year-round contest for the Slovak ultra trail races participants. The contest is organized by the SLOVAK ULTRA TRAIL association in cooperation with the organizers of the race events, which are part of the league.
Principle of the contest:
The basic principle of the contest is to motivate the people to participate in the ultra trail races and to reach best possible ranking. The objective is to collect points from the ultratrail races, which are part of the Slovak Ultratrail League 2019. The overall ranking reflects 8 races with highest amount of points received. Based on the points received the Slovak Ultratrail League ranking is being updated after every race.
The second ranking in Slovak Ultratrail League 2019 is based on the number of successfully finished races with taking its course difficultness into account. The points in this ranking come from the summation of difficultness points from the finished races (TAB NO.1, column Dif.).
The winners ceremony of Slovak Ultra Trail League 2019 will take place during the year-end SLOVAK ULTRA TRAIL event in Bratislava.
