Ultra Trail World Tour

aaa

Created in 2014, the Ultra-Trail World Tour is a prestigious long-distance (more than 100 km) trail race-circuit, in diverse technical terrain and with different levels of difficulty. Conceived as an international circuit, it is a series of events which serve as a reference model in five continents. In the 2018 season it will be present in 18 countries all around the world.

Held in collaboration with ITRA (International Trail Running Association), its steady growth is attributable to one of its main objectives: to ensure better geographical coverage and to improve access to the circuit.

Running an Ultra-Trail World Tour race means joining and forming part of an exclusive club:

  • The finishers. From beginning to end, everyone is important and stars in their own sports stories which combine their self-demanding attitude, emotion, and the satisfaction of crossing the finish line.
  • The elite runners. The Ultra-Trail World Tour allows the meeting of incredible runners. Champions who deserve fame and to be known for their performances; they are an authentic inspiration for runners all over the world!

UTWT Health policy

QUARTZ Event PROGRAM
The Organization of the Penyagolosa Trails HG has decided to set up the QUARTZ Event program to protect your health and contribute to doping-free sport. This program is open to all participants. This program has neither the vocation nor the competence to replace anti-doping rules but aims to strengthen the medical supervision before and during the competition. QUARTZ Event program is carried out in collaboration with the International Trail Running Association (ITRA), Athletes For Transparency association (AFT) and Ultra Sports Science Foundation (USS); it is managed by a Health Commission solely composed of doctors. This Health Commission can take advice from experts of its choice and specifically give a consultative advice to the race direction on the medical condition of participants. This Health Commission can go as far as to suggest to the race direction that a participant should be excluded from competition for health reasons.

 

Each participant agrees to:

 

1. Declare to the Health Commission the following medical information:

  • Any medical history and/or pathology, in particular those which may increase risks during the practice of a sport.
  • The use of regular treatments or medication during the 30 days prior to the start of the competition.
  • Request or use of a substance or method subject to a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE).

 

2. Provide all urinary and/or blood and/or hair and/or salivary samples required from 30 days before the competition and up to 7 days after the competition. He/she also consents to the associated analysis of these samples, on the understanding that the costs for the sampling and analyses are covered directly by the Organization.

 

3. Accept not to participate in the competition if glucocorticoids have been used, without any relation to the mode of administration and therefore the presence or not of a TUE, within the 7 days before the start of the competition. The use of glucocorticoids may be identified in the context of the analysis carried out, either from a direct dosage or in the case of an abnormally low cortisol.

 

4. Accept to answer any meeting request on site or remotely (phone or videoconference) that the Health Commission may ask for in order to discuss their ability or not, to participate in the competition.

 

5. Accept the use of strictly anonymous data for research purposes. Each participant has a right of access, rectification and opposition to data concerning him. The Health Commission is the authority with which the participant can exercise this right.

 

The declaration of medical information to the Health Commission is done through the ITRA health space that each participant can activate after having created a free runner account on the ITRA website: itra.run. The declared medical information is only accessible by the doctors of the Health Commission or in the event of medical care being carried out during the competition the declared medical information will also be made available to the medical team.

 

Any unreasonable breach, refusal, or transmission of erroneous information in connection with QUARTZ Event program can result in the exclusion of the participant from the competition.
