COVID-19 Instructions

Message from the ITRA Medical and Health Commission on COVID-19:

"Our first recommendation is to urge you to follow the instructions given by your respective governments.

Concerning your sports practice, we recommend that people with chronic diseases should cease sports activities altogether.
People who do not have chronic illnesses and are in good health can practice moderate activity. Social distancing is of utmost importance. Currently there are some countries that are not allowing pubic sporting activities due to quarantine. Please follow your local regulations.

Recommendations concerning sport practice:

  • Exhaustive efforts, such as racing, cause short term immune suppression and therefore is not recommended.
  • Practice social distancing by avoiding group sport activities.
  • Sport related injury would add undue stress to an overly saturated health care system, please use extra caution while doing physical activity.

For Organizers, please inform us when your governments authorize the resumption of your events. Refer to your local regulations regarding postponement or cancellation of events.

For more information on COVID-19, read the article written by iRunFar. This article is updated regularly based on scientific and medical data collected by the editorial staff.

We wish you all the best in caring for yourself and your loved ones."
