ITRA Freezing of the Performance Index

Dear Runners,

Guided by ITRA’s values of Fair Play, Equity, Respect others, and one’s self, in response to the global COVID-19 crisis the ITRA Leadership Team has decided to put a temporary freeze on the calculation of the Performance Index from the 1st of March 2020 until 1st of January 2021.

The ITRA Performance Index (PI) is calculated over 36months with recent results being worth more than older ones (for more information on the ITRA PI click here).

With the cancellation of a vast majority of races during this period, runners are unable to race to maintain or improve their PI. If we were not to place this freeze on the PI, we will see a decrease of PI across all athletes and at all levels.

By placing a freeze on the PI over this period of uncertainty we hope to achieve the following:

  • No disadvantage to those athletes who are unable to race or train due to circumstances beyond their control.
  • No advantage to athletes who are in unaffected areas.
  • No advantage or pressure for runners to begin training and racing again too soon when the short-term global health environment is unknown.

On Tuesday the 12th of May, your ITRA performance index will revert back to its value on the 1st of March 2020.

Your ITRA PI will remain at this value until the reopening of the index in January 2021.

ITRA races completed during the freeze period:

  • Will have scores calculated but these will NOT be taken into consideration of the overall PI.
  • Will be included when the PI is recalculated at the opening in 2021.
