Every athlete who stands at the starting line of an IUTA sanctioned race can freely chose to be a member in the waiver of the corresponding organizer. Explanation: In order to comply with the conditions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we made the decision to delete all existing member's personal data after the 2018/2019 committee handover. We only process the data of those athletes who have been on the starting line of an IUTA competition since January 2019 and have authorized us to do so in writing.
Why I do not receive member-specific e-mails from IUTA?
The e-mail address you entered in the IUTA Waiver is not correct or no longer up to date. Just send us your correct or new address via our contact form and allow us to note/update it.
Your mailbox is full and does not accept new incoming e-mails.
Maybe our e-mail is stored in your spam box.
You're not a IUTA member.

On Wikipedia and other websites or Guiness Book of Records there are world records that sometimes differ from the IUTA website. Which ones are correct?
In case of doubt, the IUTA world records apply. Not all world record holders attach importance to get an entry in the Guiness Book of Records. Furthermore we can't say anything about the content or quality of other websites. IUTA exclusively maintains its own website according to the quality standards mentioned here.
Does IUTA cooperate with operators of other social media channels? One often reads news about or from IUTA outside the official IUTA website and/or the IUTA social media channels.
No, we do not work with operators of other social media channels, except with our organizers and sponsors. Any publications of IUTA contents intended for internal purposes is the sole responsibility of the person publishing it and are made without our knowledge and without our consent. We hereby expressly distance ourselves from any content, in particular untruths, half-truths, defamation regarding our members, our events and IUTA itself on all social media channels and websites not operated by IUTA.
I want to bring my event/race to IUTA. What do I have to do?
Welcome to IUTA. First step is to let us know that you're interested in to bring your event to the IUTA race calendar. Write us a short e-mail via our contact form. You have to fulfil at least requirements as follows that we agree in writing in a contract. Please note: The deadline for your written request is always October 15th for your event the following year, no matter in which month it will take place.
Why do the race tracks have to be officially measured (with protocol)?
Of course, IUTA appreciates records accordingly, but the main thing in ultra-triathlon is to cover the distance. We as an association consider it to be cheating on athletes and also on organizers, whose courses meet the minimum dimensions, if race courses are too short. We also want to prevent "undercutting competition" between organizers who advertise with new best times on their (too short) race courses.
