Virtual IAU Executive Council Meeting
On June 20th our first Virtual IAU Executive Council Meeting took place. We have flexibly adjusted to the current situation and so we adapted to work using virtual techniques. The covid-19 pandemic have caught us and had an impact on IAU Major Events but we still keep working behind the scene to make sure we move forward with projects and activities at our end. There were several points discussed over the two hour meeting that ended up as very productive and soon you will see some of new initiatives that we are preparing for our members.  > more

IAU 6H Virtual Global Solidarity Run 29th/30th August 2020

We understand very well that athletes need to have some motivation to train and compete during these difficult times but need to do so safely.  The majority of our ultrarunning federations have been drastically affected by the Covid-19 crisis. Regretfully, we have needed to cancel most of our championships this year which has led to athletes losing their goals and short-term ambitions.  In the spirit of universal camaraderie and uplifting of the morale, we have planned a virtual "IAU 6 Hour Global Solidarity Run" for our ultrarunning family to engender athletic interest and friendly global fun.   > more

The International Association of Ultrarunners (IAU) is operating under the patronage of the IAAF and is dedicated to develop ultradistance running internationally within the IAAF Rules & Regulations.

As international governing body for ultradistance running, one of our main objectives is to promote and develop long distance running worldwide by encouraging specific activities in each of the IAAF Continental Areas.

The 100 km is our “flagship” since the IAAF officially sanctions this distance and also ratifies 100 km world records.

The major IAU competitions are :
100 km World Championships under the patronage of the IAAF
100 km Area Championships
24H World Championships
24H Area Championships
Trail World Championship
