World Indoor Tour expands for 2024

The 2024 World Athletics Indoor Tour will feature the first Gold-level meeting in Asia on a packed calendar with more than 50 meetings across all levels.

With three months to go until the first Gold level action of the season, meetings spread across 20 countries in Europe, North America and Asia have been announced and the scoring disciplines confirmed.

From just seven meetings in 2020, the tour has grown and now, for the second season in a row, features more than 50 meetings.

Now in its ninth season, the World Athletics Indoor Tour begins on 29 December in Pamplona, Spain, and ends on 24 February in Rouen, France.

The series will feature seven Gold level meetings, kicking off on 27 January in Astana, Kazakhstan – the first ever World Indoor Tour Gold meeting in Asia. The Gold meetings culminate in Madrid on 23 February.

The scoring disciplines on the World Athletics Indoor Tour rotate each year. For 2024 the Gold level scoring disciplines will be:

Women: 400m, 1500m, 60m hurdles, high jump, long jump
Men: 60m, 800m, 3000m/5000m, pole vault, triple jump, shot put

Each athlete’s best three results will count towards their overall point score. The athlete with the most points in each scoring discipline at the end of the tour will be declared the winner and will be awarded a USD$10,000 bonus. They will also be offered a wild card entry for the World Athletics Indoor Championships Glasgow 24.

Each Gold meeting will offer at least USD$7000 in prize money for each individual discipline on the programme, including USD$3000 to the winner.

Silver meetings in the expanded tour will award at least USD$30,000 (at least $4000 per discipline and respecting gender equality) and Bronze meetings will offer at least USD$12,000 (at least $2500 per discipline and respecting gender equality).
