July and August looked safe but not anymore
NEW YORK (USA): With nearly all spring running events already cancelled or postponed, several prominent summer races have begun to join them. July and August looked safe just a month ago for holding events, but event organizers are realizing that there is still too much uncertainty due to the COVID-19 crisis to fully plan for races in late June, July and August. “This has been a heartbreaking decision for all of us, but is the right and only decision to be made at this time of uncertainty and unknowns,” said Olympic gold medalist Joan Samuelson the founder of the TD Beach to Beacon 10-K which was just cancelled yesterday. The event had been scheduled for Saturday, August 1, in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. From RRW.
