Dublin and Turin to stage SPAR European Cross Country Championships in 2021 and 2022
Following the successful and graceful cooperation of all parties including the respective Local Organising Committees, the SPAR European Cross Country Championships will now be held in Fingal-Dublin in 2021 and in Torino-La Mandria Park in 2022.
Fingal-Dublin was due to host next month’s event on 13 December but the event was cancelled in 2020 owing to the coronavirus pandemic.
Having previously staged the SPAR European Cross Country Championships in 2009, the event will now take place in the Irish capital for the second time in 2021 at the Sport Ireland Campus on the outskirts of Dublin on 12 December.
Initially awarded the 2021 SPAR European Cross Country Championships, Torino-La Mandria Park will now host the 2022 edition.
European Athletics Interim President Dobromir Karamarinov said: "Unfortunately, Dublin was unable to host this year’s SPAR European Cross Country Championships this year but we would like to thank Torino-La Mandria for their cooperation to allow Dublin to stage next year’s event.
