The IAU's 100km WorldCup was held in Tarquinia, in Italy on 8th November 2008. As part of it the IAU's annual Congress also took place.
The first item on the agenda was that the president of IAU, Dirk Strumane reported the result of the last four year. He spoke about the betterment of IAU's material statement, about the communication's improvement between members and IAU stuff and about they succeding in standardisation the major IAU competitions. After that the general secretary, Hilary Walker laid the following four years plans, including the 100km race becoming an olympic discipline. This aim hardly could be achieved untill 2012, but hopefully eight years will be enough for Ultrarunning becoming part of the World's most famous event. The last item on the agenda was the lenghten of IAU stuff's mandate by the attending members.
