Due to the continued covid19 situation, we are forced to postpone the 2020 Viborg ITU Powerman MD Duathlon World Championships to autumn 2021. New date will be announced as soon as possible.
This has not been an easy decision and we know this announcement will upset your plans. We are aiming for a world-class event, with participants from all over the world. We, therefore, have to take into consideration that some athletes might not be able or allowed to travel to Denmark in October 2020, furthermore we acknowledge that many international athletes don’t feel safe traveling in these times.
