Information from february 2021

30th edition of the Course des 3 Pays on May 22nd 2022

The Organizing Committee in charge of the 3 Countries Race regrets to announce that it has had to cancel this years’ traditional running event also. As such the next edition of this major running event will be in 2022.

The start shot of our anniversary race was foreseen in May 2020…, but did not happen. The Covid19 pandemic has played us parts again in 2021 and forced us to definitively cancel this mythic race this year once again. The festivities that were planned would have been very special with the planned participation of former athletes and artistical shows that would have given a special and memorable touch to the party. Instead, last year, we have had as a first ever, to cancel this reknown competition.

All hopes were on this years’ event. Taking the evolution of the Covid 19 pandemic into account an alternative was in the works for the autumn of this year. However due to the health crisis related constraints, which additionally are not the same throughout the 3 countries, the Organizing Committee has decided to postpone the anniversary race to May 2022. More precisely Sunday the 22nd of May 2022. In taking this difficult decision which provides an adequate level of certainty about the race itself taking place, the Organizing Committee means to ensure the full support of partners, sponsors and voluntaries alike.

Yet, another year without the 3 Countries Race is difficult to bear. For this matter 2022 will mark the rebirth of all planned festivities, regardless if you are planning to run the 10.1k or the 21.1k. It will put an end to this frustrating situation and mark the spirits with the peculiarity that made its success: the crossing of the 3 borders. The Organizing Committee and all those that lend us a helping hand look forward to welcome the largest number of participants ever in 2022.

For any questions related to this announcement, please do not hesitate to contact the following Organizing Committee members.
