The 2020 Athens Marathon Has Been Cancelled Due to the Corona Virus
In times like we have never seen in the world we live in; we have no choice other than to cancel the marathon April 19, 2020. We know that you have trained and prepared for the event over the last several months and we have held off canceling to see if things would improve.
COVID-19 cannot be taken lightly. As our Committee has discussed we cannot put our participants or our volunteers at risk. Governor Dewine has stated that any event of over 100 participants must be cancelled, Athens City and The Marathon Committee are following these guidelines to protect others as well as ourselves.
Due to many different circumstances the race could not be rescheduled for 2020. However, we are going to honor your registration for the April 18, 2021 event. There will be no cash refunds and the deferral will only be deferred to the 2021 event.
We appreciate your support of The Athens Ohio Marathon and we look forward to seeing all of you in 2021!
Stay Safe and Healthy,
Lisa Simons, Event Director
