IAAF Suspension of Russian Federation

IAAF state that: “In principle, ordinary fun runners with absolutely no ties to the Russian Federation are eligible to participate.”

Further, it is be best to explicitly identify the participation of any ‘eligible’ Russian runners in advance of the race being held to avoid any misunderstanding with media outlets.
