The Schneider Electric Marathon of Paris 2020, postponed to October due to coronavirus

The new and 44th edition of the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris was said to be held on Sunday April 5, 2020 but is postponed to October 18, 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

This year, the route is set between the Avenue des Champs-Elysées and the Porte Dauphine.

The Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris will be  back on Sunday October 18, 2020! As tradition would have it, participants will start the race from the Champs Elysées and cover the legendary 42.195km throughout the French capital’s most beautiful streets, before crossing the finish line by the Porte Dauphine.

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.⠀

The virus, also known as COVID-19, emerged in China's Wuhan last December, and has since spread to over 80 countries.

The global death toll is past 3,300 with more than 98,000 cases, according to the World Health Organization.

In France alone, 420 cases have been reported with 6 deaths.

The country has announced it would enter the third and final stage on an urgency scale of preparing against and combating the virus.
