Milano Marathon postponed for the Coronavirus emergency

The Milano Marathon scheduled for early April due to the Coronavirus emergency has been postponed. The announcement arrived today via social media. Organization working to find a new date in the calendar. This is the message: Dear Runners, nobody knows better than you that running is freedom. And in sport as in the marathon of life, freedom is choosing. Also not to run, if this is the right thing to do for oneself and for others. That's why we are convinced that, in this moment of serious emergency for Italy and its people, you will all share and make your choice, albeit painful, to postpone the Generali Milano Marathon scheduled for next April 5th. It is not just a matter of complying - as absolutely right and necessary - with the measures to combat the coronavirus epidemic envisaged by the Decree of the Prime Minister of the Italian Republic of 8 March 2020.

It is also and above all a question of respect, affection and strong links between a long-awaited event and the iconic city that welcomes it. Milan is not only the scenario in which a competition has been taking place that has accompanied its extraordinary economic and social growth for 20 years. It is the living organism that feeds the race with its extraordinary energy, the enthusiasm of the institutions, the passion of the citizens.

Now that the Lombard metropolis and its territory are experiencing one of the most difficult moments in their recent history, stopping all together is an act of love that lays the foundations for starting again. Together. RCS Sport has been running alongside you for years as organizer of the Generali Milano Marathon. His first concern is, and always will be, the protection of the health and safety of runners, volunteers, staff members and everyone involved.

For this, in agreement with the Mayor and all the institutions involved, he must confirm with extreme regret the decision to stop a competition of great international prestige which in 2020 turns twenty. But continuing to run - get back to running soon - is your passion and our mission. This is why we can tell you right now that what we have communicated today is only a delay. We are already working to find, in the coming months when the emergency is over, a new date in the Fidal calendar that we will communicate to you soon.

That day, we will be many at the start of the Generali Milano Marathon and we will run lighter. In the awareness of having acted as real sportsmen and of having witnessed something important. But continuing to run - get back to running soon - is your passion and our mission. This is why we can tell you right now that what we have communicated today is only a delay. We are already working to find, in the coming months when the emergency is over, a new date in the Fidal calendar that we will communicate to you soon.
