The following announcement was recently made by the IAU (International Association of Ultrarunners):

It is with great pleasure the IAU Executive Council announces that Brive, France will be hosting the 8th IAU 24 Hour World Challenge on May 13-14 2010.  The race under the organization of Pays de Brive Athlétique Club was impressive in its bid to the IAU Council and the Fédération Française de l'Athlétisme (FFA).  The Local Organizing Committee is looking forward to inviting the many athletes and federations to this historic town and making everyone feel at home.  The 24 hour event has increased in its participation since its inception. 2010 promises to once again bring international athletes in good numbers to this very popular IAU event.  More information pertaining to the race will be available in the new year. We are all looking forward to witnessing Brive hosting the 2010 IAU 24 Hour World Challenge. Congrats Brive!
