The Paris Marathon Organizing Committee 17 stated that Paris in 2021 will be held on October of that year. This is mainly due to the impact of Coronavirus pandemic. The adjustment of the schedule date of the 2020 Paris Marathon has been cancelled.
The Paris Marathon Organizing Committee issued a statement on the same day that the Paris Marathon will be held on October 17, 2021 and the half marathon will be held on September 5, 2021.
The Paris Marathon is generally scheduled to be held in April each year, and the half-marathon is scheduled for each year. 3 It is considered that, considering the original plan, holding the marathon in 2021 is still “risky”. In the fall of 2021, Coronavirus vaccine may be expected to be vaccinated on a large scale, and the event has a chance to be held.
The organizing committee pointed out in the statement that before and during the 2021 Paris Marathon, the organizers will do everything they can to ensure strict relevant rules.
With Coronavirus pandemic, the Paris Marathon originally scheduled to be held on April 5 this year has been postponed, but it has still been cancelled. Participants previously registered by the organizer for the 2020 Paris Marathon will be eligible to register for the 2021 event.
