The IFSS Europe Sports Committee has at the spring meeting in Stockholm discussed a proposal, received from the Norwegian Federation. They proposed that IFSS Europe should arrange a Long Distance European Championships in 2016.

The IFSS Europe Sports Committee decided that it was a good idea to follow the WC example even for the EC. This decision means that the event for 2016 now is open for bids.

The Norwegian Federation, who gave the proposal of this new EC Event, has also filed an application that they are willing to organize the race in 2016, but the Sports Committee decided that this event is now open for other countries to apply for and the deadline for the bids is the 1st of June 2015.

We are looking forward to this EC-event.

Best regards
