*  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).

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 :
