The latest major event to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic is one of the biggest annual events in Buffalo.
The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge has postponed all of its races through July 2, which includes what would have been the 40th annual Buffalo race on June 18.
Buffalo's Corporate Challenge draws thousands of runners (and party-goers) to the 3.5-mile road race in and around Delaware Park. Last year's 39th annual event included more than 13,800 runners from a record 427 Western New York companies.
There is a possibility that the race could be held later in the year. J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge officials said they are "investigating new dates in the 2020 calendar" for all postponed races.
"The well-being of our participants is our top priority," the company said in a release. "Thank you for your understanding and teamwork as we plan to have a delayed but remarkable 44th year of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Series."
Other than Buffalo, the postponed events are Johannesburg (March 26), Chicago (May 21), New York City (May 27-28), Rochester (June 2), Frankfurt (June 17), Boston (June 25), The Championship (July 1) and London (July 1-2).
There are no date changes planned and registration will open later in 2020 for the following events: Syracuse (September 10), San Francisco (September 15), Philadelphia (October 1), Dallas (October 21), Sydney (October 28), Buenos Aires (November 5), Shanghai (TBD) and Singapore (November 26).
