Due to the corona situation, we plan the Runners Decathlon 2021 with just a little optimism. We believe, that is possible to make a competition with sprint and middle distances, when we use a hygiene concept (e.g. one track space between runners or single starts). Unfortunately, we did not find something for the 10,000 m. That’s why we cut the Runners Decathlon to three days.
To avoid an overload with short and middle distance, we decided to cancel the 1,000 m also. In the case, that the 5,000 m are not allowed, we will offer the 1,000 m heats.
The Youth Runners Decathlon is shortened to five disciplines. If we can offer the 5,000 m the young runners can decide between 1,000 m or 3,000 m.
The attendance limit is much lower than in the years before. The registration for the event only begins when we know exactly whether the competition can be held.
We hope for your understanding for these changes.
