*  Authenticity

Authenticity is the first trail-running value. At its origins, trail-running was born from the runners’ motivation to practise their sport in contact with natural surroundings, so as to experience the beauty of the landscape and to learn to evolve without artifice in an environment that is demanding for both body and spirit. Trail-running is an authentic sport, because it creates a confrontation between the participant and the unspoilt natural environment as a source of inspiration, surpassing oneself, but also one of harmony.

As a social activity, trail running promotes human relationships based on simplicity, conviviality, sharing and respect for differences. The trail-running community gives these authentic values as much importance as those of performance and competition.

Security

The ITRA offers event organisers a guide of recommendations, drawn up by the Security Commission, which is made up of doctors, first-aiders, security professionals  and race organisers.

Actually, organisers are obliged to have security and rescue plans. For this reason the guide describes all the preventative initiatives intended to prevent accidents and the   information to transmit  to all the players.

For the rescue section, the guide tables all the human means and materials necessary to help people in distress.

This guide is  downloadable and free to view :
