‘I Run Clean™’ is European Athletics’ new anti-doping education programme and knowledge base. This state of art e-learning platform will help athletes, and others who love the sport, play their part in the fight against doping.
‘I Run Clean™’ is easy to use and provides everyone with the information and understanding they need to make good decisions, protect their health and avoid breaching anti-doping regulations.
‘I Run Clean™’ was developed with input from athletes, sport officials, educationalists and doping control experts.
Starting in 2018, completing the ‘I Run Clean™’ programme will become a mandatory qualification criterion for European Athletics’ championship events.
The main aim of ‘I Run Clean™’ is to provide reliable information that will help the platform’s users understand the issues around doping in sport and the regulations that must be observed to compete fairly.
‘I Run Clean™’ also aims to help athletes understand their personal values, how they relate to sport and how they contribute to good decision making. As more and more build solid ethical frameworks, the culture of clean sport will be strengthened.
‘I Run Clean™’ is meant to supplement and support the anti-doping programmes offered by federations, national anti-doping agencies and other organisations.
‘I Run Clean™’ is for you.
The main target group, of course, is athletes of all ages and performance levels – school-aged to Masters, grassroots to elite – in the 51 countries served by European Athletics. But anyone who would like to know more about making athletics a doping-free sport is welcome complete the programme.
If you love athletics you are invited to make the ‘I Run Clean™’ pledge by completing the programme and earning your diploma.
The ‘I Run Clean™’ programme consists of the following eight modules that can be accessed through your computer, tablet or smart phone:
The modules are interactive and include self-explanatory video and text as well as questions to confirm your understanding. The whole programme will take 30-40 minutes to complete, but you do not need to complete all the modules in one go.
Each module also contains links to an expert-curated knowledge base that will help you learn more about any of the topics that might interest you.
When you have finished all eight modules, you will be able to download your ‘I Run Clean™’ diploma, which will include a unique certification number.
This diploma represents your pledge to observe athletics’ anti-doping regulations and compete fairly – to Run Clean.
Everyone who completes the ‘I Run Clean™’ programme will immediately be linked to their social media accounts and encouraged share the fact that they are playing their part in the fight against doping with their friends and followers.
Yes. The diploma will be a mandatory qualification criterion for the 2018 European Athletics U18 Championships in Gyor/HUN.
Afterwards, the requirement will be applied to subsequent age-group championships and by 2020 all athletes wishing to take part in any European Athletics event will require a valid ‘I Run Clean™’ diploma.
Elite athletes will be required to communicate their certification number to their national federation so the Team Manager can include it with the entry information for future European Athletics events.
The ‘I Run Clean™‘ platform was launched in English in July 2017. By the end of the year 11 other languages will be added.
The initial 12 languages will be enough to give all elite athletes an opportunity to complete the programme and meet the requirement for competing in the European Athletics Championships starting in 2018.
Additional languages may be added in the future.
