The decision to delay the event has been made to make sure that participants from all regions have a fair chance to take part. Alternative dates are limited due to the existing IAU calendar and the ever evolving situation with COVID-19. As of now, there are restrictions on travel inside and to/from Europe.
Public activities are limited in Romania and this brings additional complexity to the preparation for the LOC. There will be a separate announcement about the IAU Congress which would have been held in May at the 24H World Championships.
The LOC is considering changing the venue of the Championship to Bucharest, due to better direct travel connections.
Further information will be made available as soon as possible.
