Cancellation of the 9th 24 Hour IAU World & European Championship in Brugg, Switzerland

This is to inform our readers that the 9th 24 Hour IAU World and European Championships in Brugg have been cancelled.   We have received word from the Brugg Local Organizing Committee today that due to some logistical and organizational matters the race will unfortunately be unable to be organized in Brugg in 2011.

We do want to thank the organizers for their efforts in the last few months/weeks to work hard to make this event go ahead. Regrettably, some issues at the end could not be overcome.

Nevertheless, the IAU Executive Committee, as of today, has started looking at alternate sites to host the event. We do not have any plausible dates yet until we can firm up a location.

We understand that a lot of nations have their national championships organized around the IAU world championships. We will endeavour to announce these championships (date and location) as soon as we receive a firm commitment from a host city.
In the meantime if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

IAU Director of Communications
