The final entries for the European 10,000m Cup in Pacé, France on 3 June are now available to view.
The men’s entry-list is headed by reigning European 10,000m champion Yemaneberhan Crippa from Italy who will be seeking his second individual title after triumphing at the 2019 European 10,000m Cup in London.
Crippa has yet to contest a 10,000m since winning gold at the 2022 European Athletics Championships in Munich but the Italian holds the fastest lifetime best of the 58 entrants at 27:10.76.
The fastest entrant based on season’s bests is Germany’s Nils Voigt with 27:30.01, one of four athletes to have broken the 28 minute-barrier in 2023.
Also watch out for a strong Spanish contingent which includes Carlos Mayo who has finished third and second individually at the last two editions of the European 10,000m Cup. Mayo has the second fastest lifetime best in the field with 27:25.00.
The fastest entrant based on lifetime bests in the women’s race is Germany’s Alina Reh who finished second individually last year and led Germany to their first ever women’s team title at the European 10,000m Cup.
The German team also includes national 10,000m champion Domenika Mayer and Eva Dieterich, both of whom were also part of Germany’s gold medal-winning team in Pacé last year.
A full and in-depth preview of the European 10,000m Cup will be published next week.
The European 10,000m Cup will also be streamed live through the European Athletics YouTube channel from 6.15pm local time on 3 June and there will also be comprehensive race day coverage on the European Athletics website and across the European Athletics social media channels.
