The International Trail Running Association (ITRA) was formed 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”.

It certifies and evaluates races in order to give reliable information to runners. This includes

  • certification of the GPS data
  • evaluation of “Endurance”, “Mountain difficulty” and “Finisher” criteria

Look here for a full explanation of the system ITRA has established.

Completion of either of the UTMR races will award you ITRA points. These can be helpful in assessing ability and experience for entry into other races and are a requirement for some.
