Europe is one of the early supporters of cross-country. The SPAR European Athletics Cross Country Championships is one of the largest continental cross-country championships, with 54 associations as members of the continental federation. The Championships are held each and every December, and the races are spectacular. The 2024 EA Champs will be held in Turkey for the first time.
