A relaunch of the Atlanta History Center’s 1996 Summer Olympics exhibit and the “buckheadRUN!” 5K races are among the latest events to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The reinvented Olympics exhibit at the History Center in Buckhead was scheduled for July to coincide with the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics. Now the Olympics has been delayed by the pandemic until 2021. And the exhibit’s opening is as well, currently scheduled for Sept. 18, according to History Center spokesperson Howard Pousner.

A related walking program for the month of May is reappearing this year in virtual form.
