Races taking place in 2020 will have the status of an WIC associated race
Due to the corona pandemic, Races organised by WIC organisers taking place in 2020 are not official WIC Marathons regarding prize money and ranking points. The organisers have re-confirmed their partnerships for 2021 but this year the races will have a strong national character due to the travel regulations and distancing requirements. The races will have a status of a WORLD INLINE CUP ASSOCIATED RACE.
“The national regulations in the different countries and continents where WIC Races would take place are too inconsistent. The travel restrictions are also quite different from country to country so that the requirements for the athletes would not be fair. At the moment we can only assume that there will be two WIC races in 2020. Two races would not be enough for a WIC Ranking. And finally, the athletes could not prepare themselves for the marathon season. Under these circumstances we decided to cancel the WIC Ranking for 2020”, said Volker Schlichting, Executive Director of the WORLD INLINE CUP.
