La ETU, European Triathlon Union, dopo le decisioni del Board dell'ITU di questa mattina che hanno portato alla sospensione dell'attività internazionale fino al 30 giugno, in un comunicato diffuso tramite il sito ufficiale delinea la situazione dei rinvii e delle cancellazione delle gare del calendario europeo.
The ITU Executive Board has decided to extend the suspension of all activities of the International Federation until June 30th, due to the current situation worldwide with the COVID-19 outbreak.
As a result, we can inform you that the following events due to be organised in the months of March, April, May and June are postponed to a later (as yet unconfirmed) date:
ETU will do the outmost to produce a revised calendar as soon as possible but it is not anticipated that this will be before the end of April.
Unfortunately, due to this extraordinary situation LOCs were forced, after consultation with their local government and sponsors and in agreement with ETU, to cancel the following races:
We are pleased to announce that these LOCs are planning to stage their events in 2021 Calendar.
We had already provided notification that the 2020 Alsdorf ETU Powerman Middle Distance Duathlon European Championships were cancelled.
The COVID-19 situation continues to change by the hour and as we at ETU have wanted to monitor developments in our National Federations, from the beginning of March we have sent out a weekly questionnaire to find out what is happening with the domestic calendar in each Country. ETU would like to thank all National Federations who complete this questionnaire. We are finalising a summary document which will be published on our Website shortly.
We will be sending out a further questionnaire by the end of April, inviting national federations to provide us with updates, so that we can be aware of the latest developments in their own country and within their own federation and that will greatly assist us in formulating an overview of the situation and provide us with insight that could help us all see when races might recommence in Europe.
For the time being our staff and volunteers will keep working from home and we are all ready to answer your questions if there are any!
Stay safe and healthy!
