MONTREAL (CAN): The Montreal Marathon on Sunday has been cancelled by organisers due to the heat, informs the Montreal Gazette. The forecast is predicting highs of 30C, although the half marathon and 10km events are still set to take place. "In consultation with medical services officials and our city partners, event organisers have determined that the unseasonably warm weather conditions are not suitable to provide a safe race experience for the 42.2 km distance. The full marathon will therefore not take place," said a statement from the race organisers.
