Following the provisional suspension of the All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF) by the IAAF, European Athletics confirms that this suspension extends to its competitions and non-sporting activities with immediate effect.

As a result, European Athletics will write to the ARAF informing them that Russian athletes will not be able to compete in the upcoming SPAR European Cross Country Championships or any other European Athletics competitions until the suspension is lifted.

These are difficult times for athletics but today our thoughts are with the victims of the Paris attacks. The European Athletics family remains united against these acts of terror and we extend our support to the people of France.
