How to calculate your points: the event, which you are going to justify, opens a certain number of points according to its distance and its positive difference in altitude: 1 km of distance is worth 1 point and 100m of positive difference in altitude is worth 1 point.
No points are required for the Mascareignes and Zembrocal trail. But experience and good training are recommended.
A 60km trail with 2500m of positive elevation gain is worth 60+25 points, or 85 points.
An ultra-trail of 100km flat or a 100km road race with no difference in altitude is worth 100 points.
A trail of 50km and 5000m of D+ is worth 100 points....
Only single-stage pedestrian races with a ranking are taken into consideration and you cannot add up the points of several races to obtain these points. The calculation is based on the distance rounded to the nearest km and the positive difference in altitude rounded to the nearest 100 metres.
