*  Humility

In practising trail-running, an activity in open country, humility is a behaviour that is adapted as much to the natural environment as to oneself.

In natural surroundings, it relies upon taking into consideration the existing natural hazards, whatever the relevance and the quality of the measures taken by the organisation of a race to ensure the safety of its participants. Humility, in the face of nature, supposes the capacity to show caution and can go as far as renouncing the race or the envisaged project. For that which concerns each individual, humility is based on the consciousness and the knowledge of one’s limits so as not to question one’s physical or mental integrity.

As a type of behaviour, humility is an inseparable attitude of listening and learning for better understanding of the principles which govern natural environments or the fundamentals of practising an intensive sport in natural environments.

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.

There will be 409 aspirants this year to its finish line.

Ehunmilak novelties for 2017: The main novelties of this eigth edition correspond to the environment, sports control, safety and live race tracking.  • In the environmental field, extended measures are applied on waste recycling, with an ever larger number of containers for selective recycling in the race.  • Sports control includes specialized personnel to ensure no runner receives external support in any form, as well as cheking out mandatory gear per each entry.  • Live race coverage will be available via geolocation, video streaming and radiotrail. All ultrarunners for the 88k and 168km races, will be geotagged by GPS. It is also worth mentioning the increase in emergency specialists to cover the route with greater guarantees.
