*  Fair-play

Fair-play indicates the loyal acceptance of rules, not only to the letter but also in the spirit which presides over their definition.

For the runners, to be fair-play means respecting the race regulations, not cheating, not bending the rules, refusing all forms of doping; but also embodying the human values of trail-running throughout all of their races; mutual aid and solidarity with the other runners, respect for all the players present at the races.

For organisers, respecting fair-play supposes the implementation of the necessary means to fight against "...cheating, bending the rules, doping, ...physical and verbal violence ...exploitation, unequal opportunities, excessive commercialisation and corruption" (extract from the Council of Europe’s Code of Sports Ethics).

Mission Statement   ▾

Born in July 2013, the ITRA (International Trail Running Association) aims to give a voice to parties involved in trail running in order to promote its strong values, its diversity, the safety of races and the health of runners, as well as to further the development of trail running and ensure a constructive dialogue between the national and international bodies with an interest in the sport.

Here's something you might not know! 

Runners can now systematically rate the quality of a race in which they have participated, using a single tool, the ITRA quality questionnaire!

[April fool] ITRA reveals its formula to evaluate trail-running courses!

ITRA has developed several tools to evaluate the difficulty of the races and to certify the runners' experience. Loïc, in charge of the course evaluations answers our questions. 
 
"Why does ITRA evaluate trail-running courses?
Knowing precisely the difficulty of a trail-running race, allows runners to check if they can participate in it, according to their physical abilities.

How can my race be evaluated?
ITRA evaluates and certify the courses of the race organizers. Create your organizer account and follow the steps indicated on the site: Link FAQ It is easy!

How do you evaluate the courses?
The distance and the elevation gain are analyzed using a simple formula to calculate the ratio between km to run and effort to provide during the race.

Here is the formula used:

formule evaluation trail

 

We apply this formula on all GPX courses filed sent by the organizers. With the result we get km-effort, the race is then classified in one of the 7 categories of trail, from XXS to XXL races. Then, the races get from 0 to 6 ITRA points according to her level of difficulty. "
