The European Athletics Championships is a biennial athletics event organised by the European Athletics Association.[1] First held in 1934 in Turin, the Championships have taken place every four years, with a few exceptions. Since 2010, they have been organised every two years, and when they coincide with the Summer Olympics, the marathon and racewalking events are not contested.
