2021 has started with some big events being postponed due to the current global pandemic. News coming out of California is that both the Los Angeles Marathon and Triathlon have been postponed until later in 2021.

The triathlon in the “city of angels,” which was scheduled to take place in May, has also been postponed until this fall.

In Florida, the St. Anthony’s triathlon has also been put on hold. A recent announcement says the race is being delayed until October.

“Our main priority has always been to stage an exciting race for athletes, from professionals to weekend warriors to those just getting started in the sport of Triathlon,” said St. Anthony’s Hospital President Scott Smith. “While we want to maintain that, we also want to present a safe and healthy race atmosphere. Our goal is to have an in-person race in 2021. But it all depends on how well the pandemic is under control.”
