Pasadena Marathon Cancellation

We were so sorry to hear about today’s cancellation of the first Pasadena Marathon.

CBS reports:

Pasadena’s first marathon has been canceled due to heavy smoke and ash from a destructive wildfire burning in Los Angeles County.

Race organizers said Sunday that they decided at the last minute to scrap the event out of concern for the health and safety of the 8,000 people who registered to participate.

The announcement at 4 a.m. came two hours before the marathon and bike tour was set to begin.

John Parks, a member of the race management team, says organizers will meet over the next several days to reschedule the event.

We can’t imagine how frustrating it must be to train for months towards the goal of a marathon, just to have it canceled 2 hours before it was supposed to start. But we also can’t image the horror of having your house burn down, especially at this time of the year as we approach the holiday season.

Our hearts go out to all of the runners who were unable to race this morning, and even more to those who have had their lives intruded upon by the fires.
