|2018 IAU 100K World Championships - site visit |
The site visit to Sveti Martin, Croatia the host of the IAU 100 km World Championships (September 2018) took place on the last days of November. Paco Rico, Technical Delegate for the event and Nadeem Khan, IAU Vice President were there for a two-day visit.
It was very productive event. Hilary Walker, Project Coordinator and IAU General Secretary had opportunity to visit the race venue in September this year as well.
We are happy to announce that preparations for the race are coming along very well. The Athletes Village is all encompassing with all amenities onsite including a convenience store and restaurants. The course has also been all laid out and the next steps are to get it officially measured.

The accommodations are going to be very comfortable for athletes and team management. The LOC is very involved in making sure that all visitors for the championships are well taken care of during their stay.
The Press Conference on 25th November spread the word to the local community on the big event in September next year. It will truly be a memorable event!
