*  Respect for
oneself

The practice of trail-running can entail risks and the search for performance and/or pleasure on no account justifies the distortion of one’s, more or less long term, good health.

Each runner will be particularly vigilant so as not to take any doping product and not to resort to the abusive use of self-medication. They must take care not to exceed their limits to the point of affecting their physical or moral integrity.

Missions

Born in July 2013, the International Trail Running Association (ITRA) mission is to promote trail running at the international level as a sport, accessible to all, rich in its diversity of cultures and places of practice.

ITRA is committed to bringing the voice of all trail stakeholders, in all integrity, to: 
  • structure discipline and share good practices
  • contribute to improving the quality of the organization of sporting events in order to promote a sport where the pleasure of running goes hand in hand with health, safety and respect for the environment. 
  • implement concrete actions to protect the health of athletes and contribute to a doping-free sport
  • maintain constructive relations with institutions, athletics federations and trail running associations, in each country and internationally
  • participate in the development of a sustainable practice that respects the environment 
  • share its sporting ethic with all the actors of the trail running scene and the general public.
The actions carried out by ITRA on behalf of the trail running stakeholders illustrate our commitment to a sport that is experienced as a human adventure, a source of fulfilment and sharing.
