PREVENTIVE AND RESEARCH ACTIONS CONCERNING HEALTH POLICY

The event organization has decided upon the implementation of health policy measures during 100 Miles of Istria.  This preventive action does not replace the current national and international regulations regarding anti-doping campaigns but aims to strengthen the medical supervision set up by the event organization, in accordance to their safety-health-assistance programme. These measures are managed jointly by the International Trail Running Association (ITRA), the Ultra-Trail World Tour (UTWT) and the event organization. This preventive action will be implemented by a medical commission, consisting of doctors, which can take advice from experts as it considers appropriate and which will be able to express a consultative opinion to the event organization’s jury on the medical condition of participants.

Each participant agrees to:

1.   Declare to the medical commission the following information:

  • Any medical history and/or pathology which may increase the risks during vigorous exercise;
  • The use of any medicine;
  • The request or procurement of any Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) for any medicine or substance which is proscribed.

The declaration of this information to the medical commission must only be done through the health space that each participant can create for free on the ITRA website: www.itra.run.

The medical information declared is accessible only to the medical commission and medical staff of the safety-health-assistance programme set up by the event organization.

2.   Provide any urinary, blood, hair and/or saliva samples and analyzes requested by the medical commission, provided that the costs involved in achieving these samples and analyzes are the direct responsibility of the event organization.

3.   To answer any reasonable request from the medical commission so as to decide upon their capacity, or not, to participate in the race, it being understood that the medical commission can propose to the event organization, that the participant be excluded from the race for health reasons.
Any unreasonable failure, refusal or provision of erroneous information from a participant related to the health policy may result in disqualification from the event.
