It is with deepest regrets we announce that the 27th 100km IAU World Championships has been cancelled in Jeju Island, South Korea.
The event originally planned for the weekend of Oct 12th has been cancelled by the Local Organizing Committee. Due to unforseen financial problems and withdrawl of sponsorships, the race has been cancelled by the LOC, and the IAU have been informed.
The IAU understands and recognizes that the 100km world championships is an integral event in the IAU calendar. Furthermore, member federations have organized their racing calendars to suit the earlier announced date of these championships.
We are working hard to secure another 100km world championships location for the month of october to replace the event in Jeju Island. If you know of any interested bids, please do not hesitate to let us know.
In the meantime we apologize for the cancellation of this event. But please also be assured that we will continue to look for an alternate site and announce as soon as we have secured one on this site.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
