Championships (MIAUC) guidelines
Every organiser who´s planning to organise a Major IAU Competition has to follow the IAU regulation in this regard. For LOC’s who would like to organize, it is important to know how to make a bid and also to know how an Event Organisation Agreement (EOA) looks like. All documents can be find in this download section. There are specific Organisational requirements/needs if you´re hosting a group of 300-350 people. There are as well specific Technical regulations to follow in order to control the race in the best circumstances. The Opening & Closing Ceremony are under the control of the IAU Director of Protocol and his guidelines. To inform all participants about the coming event, a GIS (General Information Sheet) must be send out, together with the invitation letters. Also this GIS must follow a certain format.

World Best Performances
Running faster or further than the existing World/Area Best Performance and/or Record doesn´t mean automatic that the runner set a new WBP or record. The IAU defined very clear what the conditions must be before a new WBP or record can be ratified. The IAU Record Committee is investigating all applications to find out if they are acceptable or not. Only then the IAU Executive Council can decide to ratify the claim or not.
