THE WMRA FIGHT AGAINST DOPING
1. WMRA Anti-Doping Programme
The athletic discipline of Mountain Running comes under the umbrella of IAAF (IAAF Constitution Rule 1)
The World Mountain Running Association (WMRA) is recognised by IAAF as the organisation responsible for administration of this discipline at international level and as such identifies itself completely with IAAFâ€™s fight against doping in our sport.
This means that, in all aspects of the WMRA life (and especially during the WMRA events), all IAAF and WADA Rules and Regulations must be respected.
The WMRA Council appoints a WMRA Anti-doping Commission, responsible for the administration of this programme; this Commission reports to WMRA Council.
WMRA policy is to test for doping abuse in WMRA Competitions and â€˜Out of Competitionâ€™.

2. Management of the WMRA Anti Doping Programme
The WMRA Constitution stipulates that the WMRA Council is entrusted to handle the doping related matters.
The WMRA Council appoints an Anti-Doping Commission who will follow this matter, prepare recommendations to the Council to whom he reports on its activities.
The Commission shall consist of 5 members and will include a member of the IAAF Anti-Doping administration; it will meet as often as needed but at least once a year.

The anti-doping â€˜in competitionâ€™ programme includes the following competitions:
1. WMRA World Mountain Running Championships.
2. WMRA World Long Distance Mountain Running Challenge.

6. Situation of the Runners who are not members of an IAAF Federation.
In accordance to circumstances defined in the WMRA Constitution, it can happen that a mountain running national governing body is not an IAAF Member.
For World Cup races, runners can even not member of a Federation at all.
These runners will be required to agree to anti-doping control procedures, by signing on the entry form, the text of the declaration set in para 7.

When taking part in this competition, I agree to abide by, and be subject to, the IAAF Anti-Doping Rules and Regulations.
In particular I agree to comply with any request from a certified official to provide a sample for anti-doping analysis.
