First IAU Technical Education

First IAU Technical Education. 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. At the same time IAU is trying to give back to our ultra-running community as much as possible. This is why the IAU Technical Committee completed the First IAU Technical Education in Bertioga, Brazil. The course took place on July 25th during the 2nd IAU 100 km Americas Championship.10 participants from 5 countries attended this course. Successful completion of the face-to-face course is the opening for them to become the IAU Technical Delegate who will supervise the IAU Label competitions in Central and South America.

After this face-to-face phase, candidates for the Technical Delegates will continue an internship, which will end with the submission of a complete event report from the last IAU 100 km Americas Championship which took place on July 27th in Bertioga (BRA).

The teacher of the course was our IAU Competition Director, Paco Rico, with the support and collaboration of our IAU Americas Representative, Fabian Campanini. IAU President, Nadeem Khan together with Vice President, Robert Boyce, personally greeted all attendees.

The second course, this time in English, will take place in the Romanian city of Brasov on August 30th, coinciding with the IAU 50 K World Championship.

After a few years of transition, training and building up a global panel of experts as IAU Technical Delegates, then we intend for all IAU-labeled competitions be supervised by a local IAU Technical Delegate.
