The Polish Orienteering Federation and the organisers of the World Trail Orienteering Championships 2021 have informed the IOF that, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, they are not able to organise the event in 2021. The event had been scheduled for July 20-24 in Jelenia Góra in the Lower Silesia region of Poland.
The WTOC in Poland will be postponed one year until the new dates July 19-23, 2022.
The WTOC which had previously been scheduled to be held in the Czech Republic in 2022 was moved one year, to 2023, by an IOF Council decision at the latest Council meeting on March 26. This was part of the decision made to move WTOC to a biennial schedule with the next WTOC event after the Czech Republic to be held in 2025.
