We are an athlete-owned organisation dedicated to showcasing the passion and determination of professional and elite trail runners and our responsibility in preserving trail running values.
As athletes, we have a great responsibility in protecting our sport and the different environments where we run, but also the values of the trail running community, the athletes physical and mental health and the fairness and sustainability of the competitions.
Trail running is a very diverse sport when it comes to distances and athmosphere of the competitions. And this is one of the greatness of our sport that should be preserved. Nvertheless we want to work for a sport that shares some key values across all the different competitions, with a sport free of doping with more controls for a fair competition, and ensuring the respect for the other athletes and community around the events.
We want to promote and celebrate the sport, showcasing the role and reality of the elite athletes, their passion, talent, determination, struggles and achievements. We seek to expand and realize the sport at its highest level, always remaining true to our values (fair play, sustainability, equality) and inspiring people within the trail running community and outside.

Read our Environmental Ethical Boundaries
We have an important role to play in the sustainability of the sport and protection of the environment where we practice. It isn’t about being perfect environmentalists, rather about walking towards a greener sports model. We want to encourage and educate all athletes, organizers, rule makers and federations to reduce their environmental footprint and to commit to measures to ensure the sport’s sustainability.
