Everything is ready in Abruzzo for these Master European Championships whose main venue is Pescara, for the majority of the track competitions, but the Montesilvano and Francavilla al Mare facilities are also involved and this is the fifth time in the history of these Championships, which take place in Italy. As mentioned, athletes from 39 European nations are at the start, but there are also athletes from 56 non-European countries and therefore out of the rankings. Figures that give the idea of a massive participation and the presences are announced to be particularly numerous, in addition to those from Italy, from Great Britain (437), Spain (399), Germany (384) and France (315).
