Announcement About World Mountain and Trail Running Championships
Please find below a statement from the WMRA about this November's World Mountain and Trail Running Championships in Thailand.
After discussion with our Thai colleagues in the Local Organising Committee, we have agreed that we have to make the difficult decision to postpone the first World Mountain and Trail Running Championships that were to have taken place on 11th to 14th November 2021.
The decision was taken after consideration of the current uncertain situation regarding the public health issues surrounding Covid-19 incidence in not only Thailand but also our own countries which might have led to the health and safety for our athletes and hosts being affected.
Currently we propose to hold the event in early February 2022 when the climatic conditions are similar however we will be in touch early next week with possible dates and decision deadlines.
If we are able to hold the Championships in February 2022, then eligibility for the junior up and down event will remain the same as for November 2021.
