The 2021 Wuhan Marathon, originally scheduled for October 24, has been postponed with a new date yet to be determined, the organizers announced on Thursday.

According to a statement issued by the organizing committee of the Wuhan Marathon, as confirmed COVID-19 cases were reported in a dozen domestic cities, the marathon was postponed to prevent the spread of the pandemic.

The statement added that registered runners for the 2021 Wuhan Marathon are able to retain their entry, and the registration fee will be refunded in near future.

Debuting in 2016, the Wuhan Marathon was recognized as a silver label road race event by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF). In 2020, the event was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
