BOSTON (WPRI) — There is still no date for the 2021 Boston Marathon.
When Boston Marathon organizers postponed the 2021 race, they had hoped to set a date by the end of 2020, but now they are saying that won’t be possible.
“Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in Massachusetts, we will not be able able to confirm a fall Boston Marathon date until early 2021,” a recent tweet from the Boston Athletic Association (BAA) read.
The BAA will continue to work with city and state officials on the safe return to racing, according to the post.
