Please note that as of mid-March, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control recommends that for the next 8 weeks (i.e., until early May), organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States. Furthermore, the CDC recommends that events of any size should only be continued if they can be carried out with adherence to guidelines for protecting vulnerable populations, hand hygiene, and social distancing (i.e., everyone needs to wash their hands and remain at least six feet apart, and those over 60 might want to stay home).

Below is an incomplete list of events which have been canceled or rescheduled:

Race > New Month > City > Fastest Finish > Finisher Field > Faster Factor

  1. Boston Marathon > September > Boston, MA > 2:07:57 > 26,632 > 0.2879
  2. London Marathon > October > London, England, UK > 2:02:37 > 42,485 > 0.1732
