Each runner will now be able to systematically rate the quality of a race
in which they have taken part, using a single tool - namely the ITRA quality questionnaire
At the heart of ITRA’s mission, the issue of quality is often closely linked to matters of safety and the services provided.
A number of new trail races are created every year, attracting new fans to the discipline from all over the world. As a result, it is becoming ever more important to take into account the level of quality of the different trail races before setting off along the mountain paths!
For a runner, embarking on a trail race requires not only specialised training but also experience and knowledge of the mountains for tackling the most demanding of terrains. For an organization, it is essential to ensure that all possible measures have been taken to ensure the quality of the race management and the services provided and to be prepared for any kind of problem that may occur (changing weather conditions, lost or injured runners...) whilst preserving the values and the spirit of trail running.
This is why the ITRA Quality Commission has decided to provide runners and organizers with a tool for assessing the quality of every trail race registered on the ITRA site.
