The Beijing Marathon, which will be held on October 31, will be postponed to a later date due to the coronavirus.
About 30,000 participants were expected to be present, but due to the spread of Covid.
Authorities decided to hold it at another time, while an official date has not yet been announced.
“This decision was taken to prevent the spread of the risk of a pandemic and to protect the health of staff runners as well as residents,” the authorities said in a statement.
