As part of the Toronto Marathon’s commitment to a safe and welcoming race environment, We have been in consistent communication regarding the COVID-19 outbreak globally.  We are familiar with global guidelines from WHO as well as recommendations forwarded by World Athletics.  Further, ongoing updates are being received from the Public Health Agency of Canada, Health Canada, Public Health Ontario and Toronto Public Health. Many of you are probably very aware of various events, national organizations and even entire countries that are taking extensive care to ensure the decreased probably of exposure and transmission of the COVID-19 virus.  Since we are an event of mass-gathering, the Toronto Marathon will continue to follow events globally and look for continued direction to ensure the safety of our participants, volunteers and spectators.
