We’re proud to partner with ITRA (International Trail Running Association), the governing body for trail running.
Each runner taking part in Brighton Trail Marathon will be rewarded with 1 ITRA point and ranked accordingly. ITRA points are accumulated by trail runners, which then allow them to enter trail races that are at the right level/challenge for their points.
We’ve also had Brighton Trail Marathon added to the list of qualifying races for the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc week, and one point will be awarded. You can visit the ITRA site to find out more about other trail events that points will help you qualify for.
