Berlin Marathon is set for Sept 24, while World Athletics has decided to move the 2024 Cross Country Championships away from the Croatian cities of Medulin and Pula, citing insufficient progress in preparations for the event initially scheduled for February 10 next year.

The governing body is nearing the end of negotiations with a substitute European host to stage the event in March 2024. An announcement regarding the new host is expected by the end of September. World Athletics remains open to collaborating with Croatia for future events.
