Ethics

The world of TRAIL RUNNING brings together different sorts of people who do not only practise sport, but who also believe in and respect a number of important values that form the ethics of sport.

Respect for People 
Self-respect: no cheating, no deception, either before or during the run;
Respect for the other runners: always help another runner in difficulty;
Respect for the volunteers: they take part in the race simply for the pleasure of helping out.

Respect for Nature 
Respect plants and wildlife: don’t leave rubbish behind.
Stick to the paths marked, without taking shortcuts, in order to prevent soil erosion.

No money prizes 
Just a prize to reward each runner who finishes the trail.

Sharing and solidarity 
Everyone, be they runners or volunteers, should take action to ensure support is provided in all situations. Support for humanitarian causes, to help everyone put their own suffering into perspective. A sum of money will go towards supporting the construction of emergency bivouacs that can be transported by helicopter.
