40 Days to go for the Longines FEI Endurance World Championships 2021

40 Days to go for the Longines FEI Endurance World Championships 2021

On Saturday May 22nd at Pisa’s San Rossore racecourse, the Longines FEI Endurance World Championship will send a great sporting message, one that also intends to proudly bear witness to strength and resilience in times that have been anything but easy.

The world of sport, including of course the endurance family, is longing to return to normality and assert those values such as coming together, competing and sharing that have always been the foundations of the Longines FEI Endurance World Championship 2021.

The message is a clear one as proved by the interest with which federations from all over the world are preparing for this great event. Lithuania, Norway, Romania, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay have already signed up their horse/rider combinations with many more to follow before April 21st which is the deadline for nominated entries.

Sistemaeventi.it (the Organising Committee company headed by Gianluca Laliscia, former endurance champion), backed by the successes clocked up in over twenty years of activity, working at top speed in cooperation with the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) and the Italian Equestrian Sports Federation (FISE) with support from the Municipality of Pisa and the Tuscan Region, will face a great challenge so as to ensure that the days of the Longines FEI Endurance World Championship 2021 will be unforgettable ones.

The Organising Committee’s determination in delivering this ambitious project arises above all from the desire to give the world of endurance what must become the event marking its rebirth, held in a unique location such as that of the San Rossore racecourse and the Migliarino San Rossore Massaciuccoli Regional Park. Here there are thousands of acres of uncontaminated nature that, ever since 2015, the first year of the Toscana Endurance Lifestyle, have revealed their beauty and deservedly became part of the small number of world capitals of endurance.

Very few other corners of our planet can boast such an enviable synergy between facilities for equestrian sport, hospitality, landscapes and the infrastructures that San Rossore can rely on, having been capable of evolving from being the ‘historical’ home of Italian racing to hosting the most important endurance events of recent years. Events hosted include the 2016 Italian Championships, the FEI Meydan European Endurance Championship for Young Riders & Juniors 2018 and 2019, as well as the FEI Meydan World Endurance Championship for Young Riders & Juniors and the FEI Meydan World Endurance Championship for Young Horses 2019, including three legs, from 2017 to 2019, of the HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Endurance Cup Festival.
