World Mountain and Trail Running Championships: Change of Date
Following discussions with the Local Organising Committee, the decision has been made to bring the date of the Championships forward, to 3rd - 6th November.
Unfortunately, the original dates now clash with the final summit meeting of the Asia-Pacific Economic Forum, being held in Bangkok. Not only are our government hosts fully committed to the meeting, there would also be extra security surrounding the visit of key heads of state, potentially leading to inconvenience for visiting athletes and staff.
The programme is unchanged, as is the hotel accommodation and the other key locations.
We acknowledge that this change of date may inconvenience a number of federations but it is our hope that having brought them the news as soon as possible, while ensuring that all other plans for travel, accommodation and technical details remain the same, they will be able to continue to plan their attendance.
We look forward to seeing you all in Thailand in November, a little earlier than expected.
