Athletics at EuroGames 2020 in Düsseldorf
Track and field:
Since we see track and field as a core sports to EuroGames, we have secured vast experience with SC Janus and the “Leichtathletikverband Nordrhein” joining our team. We also have a perfect location with the Rather Waldstadion in Düsseldorf, which serves as a regional training centre site and also hosts a popular athletics meeting.
After our recent experiences with triathlon at EuroGames, it was our goal to make sure that the triathlon remains part of the EuroGames sports. For this we have secured the know-how and have determined a route that participants will like! Also we will ensure athletes have a proper changing area, volunteers and a closed-off racetrack.
5- and 10-km run:
The 5- and 10-km-competitions will be combined with the track for the triathlon. As soon, as the triathlon is completed, the runs will take place on the same route. This will lead from the central starting point for all competitions along the river and back to the central starting point, where we are sure to set up an area of fun!
We have decided to offer a Half-marathon at the EuroGames 2020. The course will be combined with the short-distance running competitions. For further details we will keep you posted.
