Race-directors please contact Harn
Athletes please contact Walter
There is an actual Anti-Doping Policy in IUTA - we are working on getting that highly professional and to state of the art testing. For that we are in contact with WADA /NADA and affiliated Companies. We are planning that IUTA is going to pay for the tests. We keep you informed how our progress is, but please understand that particular informations in that case have to be a secret ;-).
*) Point System
There are often complaints about the existing point system for our World-Cup, we try to find solutions to be more fair to anybody and every race. A fair point system should not favor anybody or anything. So we are trying to adept the existing system and trying new ones this season in background to see how the different systems are working and find errors in them. So we are able to present a â€žnewâ€ś system in one of the coming seasons.
*) Athlete feedback
This season we are implementing a new feedback for athletes. After each race we ask you to send us back your feedback in the file you receive from Walter via e-mail. If you did a race and didnÂ´t get a file, please contact him, he will send it to you immediately. Each athlete has three weeks to send it back. The only one who will know who sends which comments will be Walter, he will do a summary on all feedbacks and delete the single files after that.
*) ROY Award
We are planning to place a â€žRace of the yearâ€ś Award. We plan to do it like a World Cup for races. Based on the athlete feedbacks we get from each race and from Committee each race earns more or less points. At the end of the season the race with most points wins the Award and gets benefit for it. This is just in beginning of planning and discussion.
*) Affiliated races
New in our Calendar are Affiliated Races. This races are not in the usual format, like Ultraman-Style. They are not yet part of the World-Cup, but in future they may be part of it (if we find a point system to be fair for all kinds of races) or they could get an extra Worldcup. We are also open for Offroad-Ultras and so on. There will be also â€žnew racesâ€ś, Ultratriathlons in the right format who are there the first time to see how they are doing and where they need help in organising.
World-Cup-Winners (Man and Woman) will receive a Rainbow-Jersey at the end of the season.
We are discussing to get in sponsors for IUTA to have more money to help race directors and to make better and bigger races.
We are trying to get more publicity and to get our beloved sport better known. We would like to ask each race director or athlete to do his best to get publicity for the event or the single athlete. If you send your story in newspaper or a link from a video of your TV station we will gladly post it on our facebookpage to attract more people to read and watch.
