With regret, England will not participate in Interland 2021 next February in Belgium. The conditions and national restrictions (including France and Belgium as well as England) in a few months’ time regarding events and travel are at best unpredictable, and at worst would make travelling impossible. This makes the organisational and financial risks of planning conditional participation too high and therefore unacceptable. Let us look forward to running in sunlit forests, hopefully next summer, and then at Interland 2022 hosted by FRSO (in southern Belgium).
