Projected Tour Price. Under normal circumstances, track tours to Eugene are pretty reasonable in cost, but this is not a normal circumstance. Hoteliers in or near Eugene are well aware of the huge demand and are pricing their rooms accordingly. Series tickets for the last World Championships (London 2017) cost almost $1500, and we’re expecting Eugene to cost considerably more. We are projecting a basic tour price of $5300-5700 per person, double occupancy. The current deposit required is $2100 per person. The cancellation fee is just $15 per person, though that will go up to $150 per person July 20, 2021.
