WORLD ATHLETICS HALF MARATHON CHAMPIONSHIP
POSTPONED TO NOVEMBER 2022
Yesterday, the official statement was issued where World Athletics and the local organizing committee (LOC) of the Yangzhou 2022 World Half Marathon Athletics Championships agreed to postpone the championships.
Initially, they were scheduled to be held in Yangzhou, China, on March 27, 2022. The event will now take place on Sunday, November 13, 2022.
The postponement is due to the biosecurity measures and travel restrictions currently in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in China.
These conditions may change between now and March, but in order to provide certainty to athletes, coaches and Member Federations, the World Athletics Council agreed to reschedule the championships to allow more time for existing travel and quarantine restrictions to be eased.
World Athletics and the LOC in Yangzhou are committed to the responsible planning and delivery of the half marathon championships, which includes ensuring that athletes from all international federations are able to participate and enjoy an experience that is befitting a World Athletics Series event.
More information about the championships will be released as it becomes available.
