WHEN Dublin last staged the Euro­pean Cross Coun­try Cham­pi­onships, back in 2009, Hay­ley Yelling won the women’s ti­tle and Mo Farah passed out shortly af­ter fin­ish­ing sec­ond in the men’s race to Ale­mayehu Bez­abeh – a Span­ish run­ner who has sub­se­quently served a dop­ing ban.

In two years’ time this kind of drama is set to re­turn to the Ir­ish cap­i­tal when it holds the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships again. The event will be held at the Na­tional Sports Cam­pus in the Blan­chard­stown area on the out­skirts of Dublin on De­cem­ber 13, 2020.

In ad­di­tion, Euro­pean Ath­let­ics says its un­der-20 cham­pi­onships in 2021 will be held in Tallinn, Es­to­nia.
