The New York City Marathon was set to celebrate their 50th anniversary in November. Now, the race is being called off due to concerns of the pandemic.


Runners across the world will have to wait another year to participate. The race was set to take place November 1st but has been postponed to November 7th, 2021. Refunds and deferment of entries will be available to anyone who had signed up to take part of this year's race. According to CNN, CEO of New York Road Runners Michael Capiraso released a statement regarding canceling the event:

"Canceling this year's TCS New York City Marthon is incredibly disappointing for everyone involved, but it was clearly the course we needed to follow from a health and safety perspective."

CNN also reported that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio believes calling off the race is the right decision.

"While the marathon is an iconic and beloved event in our city, I applaud New York Road Runners for putting the health and safety of both spectators and runners first."

The NYC Marathon has only been canceled once before in the past, due to the superstorm Sandy that hit the east coast in 2012 and joins the Boston, London, Paris and Tokyo marathons in being cancelled.
