As you know, the Tokyo Olympics, originally scheduled for 2020, had to be postponed to 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The current dates are Friday, July 23 to Sunday, August 8, 2021. At this time, we are waiting for final word on whether these Games will go ahead as scheduled. Our best guess right now is that the Games will go on, but without foreign spectators. If so, that will kill our Olympic tour, and the arduous process of getting refunds from ticket agents and hotels will begin so that we can refund our tour members. We expect that this could take some months. As to the Olympic Trials, if there is an Olympics, even without spectators, there will have to be a Trials. We are awaiting word on whether spectators would be allowed for these Trials, which will take place in Eugene, Oregon. Their announced dates are June 18-27. Once these final decisions are made, we will inform all our members and post the new information on this website.
World Athletics has announced that the next World Championships, which were supposed to be in Eugene in 2021, have been postponed to July 15-24, 2022.
We ask for your patience and goodwill in these difficult times. Stay safe. We’ll keep you posted on developments.
