After the postponement of Harmonie Mutuelle Semi De Paris 2020 (Paris Half Marathon), French authorities on Friday also delayed the Schneider Electric Marathon De Paris (Paris Marathon) due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The organizers said the race, which was slated for April 5, had been rescheduled for Oct. 18.
The Paris Half Marathon, meanwhile, will take place on Sept. 6.
The decisions came in light of new rules by the French government to cancel “gatherings of more than 5000 people.”
“The practical changes concerning these two events will be communicated to the competitors shortly,” organizers said in a statement.⠀
