“We are extremely disappointed, and will miss the incredible fans who have supported us, but the safety of our fans, participants, volunteers, staff, partners, and media will always remain our top priority,” organizers said.

“(Race promoter) Green Savoree Toronto remains open to exploring all possibilities moving forward as the global situation continues to evolve.”

The news comes on the heels of the city’s decision to cancel major festivals and events throughout Toronto by not issuing permits through Aug. 31 due to the novel coronavirus.
