NYC Half Marathon canceled due to COVID

This race was canceled in 2020 because of the pandemic, as well

A year of race cancellations due to COVID-19 concerns left us feeling disappointed but hopeful for 2021. However, as cases continue to rise across the country and no approved vaccine readily available yet, some races scheduled for the beginning of 2021 are being forced to make tough decisions.

Among them is the 2021 New York City Half Marathon, which has been canceled. The race was among the first to be canceled in 2020, making this the second straight year that the race will not be held.

In a statement released by New York Road Runners (NYRR) on Wednesday, December 2, race organizers stressed the ongoing health and safety concerns due to the coronavirus pandemic, and said the decision was made in accordance with suggestions from the Mayor’s office.
