With new Covid-safe measures now in place around the world Virtus, like many sports organisations, hopes to deliver the fullest possible competition programme in 2021.
Following the cancellation of all events since March 2020, this is a welcome return to competition for Virtus athletes around the world and begins with the 2021 European Indoor Athletics Championships in France in March. Details of all planned events can be found on the calendar page.
However, the safety of all participants – athletes, team staff, event staff and spectators – is absolutely paramount and therefore Virtus will be working closely with each Local Organising Committee to ensure that all good practice guidelines are followed together with all local laws and regulations.
To assist this process, the Virtus Medical Committee have published a Return to Competition guidance document. It explains the steps Virtus will be taking, and the steps we expect organising committees and the teams entering competition to be taking, to ensure the safety of everyone involved. Virtus kindly asks all member organisation to read the guidance below.
