With just over 250 days to go, the timetable for the Paris 2020 European Athletics Championships from 25-30 August has been published and can be viewed under Related Documents.
The championships begins at 3:15pm on Tuesday with an afternoon of heats and qualifying at the Charlety Stadium which will be followed by an Opening Ceremony to be held at 8:00pm.
The majority of the action across the six days will take place inside the Charlety Stadium. The men’s and women’s long jump qualifying are however scheduled to take place in between sessions at the Athletics Park which is to be constructed on the Trocadero in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower and the half marathons will begin on the Pont d’Iena and finish at the Athletics Park.
A total of 22 finals will be held across the Saturday and Sunday including all four relays, the men’s pole vault, women’s high jump as well as the conclusion of the heptathlon and the decathlon.
One of France’s principal title hopes next August is world decathlon record-holder Kevin Mayer and the championship programme suitably concludes with the decathlon 1500m at 7:40pm on the Sunday.
