2020 IAU 100 km World Championship and Congress – cancelled

Following the development of the coronavirus situation in the Netherland,  across Europe and globally,  it is with regret that we have to inform you on the cancellation of the IAU 100 km World Championship that was planned for September 12th 2020 in Winschoten, The Netherlands. This also applies to IAU 2020 Congress. We will work with the IAU Council on the future date of the Congress and elections.


The current international situation would have seriously compromised the championships as many countries are now restricting international travel, invoking quarantines and advising citizens to remain indoors to prevent infection.  Even if the situation eases before September, any capability for international participation would be considerably reduced.

First and foremost we had to consider the health and well-being of our athletes, officials and spectators in making this decision.
