Postponement of the 2021 World Mountain and Trail Running Championships
After discussion with our Thai colleagues from the Local Organising Committee, we have agreed that we must make the difficult decision to postpone the first World Mountain and Trail Running Championships scheduled for - 11th to the 14thNovember 2021.
The decision was taken after consideration of the current uncertain situation regarding the public health issues surrounding Covid-19 in not only Thailand but also our own countries which may have affected-the health and safety of our athletes and hosts.
Currently we are planning to reschedule the event for the second weekend of February 2022, when the climatic conditions are similar. However, the confirmation of the date remains subject to monitoring the Covid-19 situation in the next few months. A final decision will be taken by the end of October 2021 on whether postponing to February 2022 is still feasible or to move to November 2022.
