MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Marathon, originally scheduled for April 10, has been postponed over COVID-19 concerns, the group that organizes the popular event announced on Tuesday.

The marathon said on social media they are working with the city, hoping to reschedule the event for a date in October. They will announce the new date sometime within the next three or four weeks.

"While this means we will all have to wait a little longer to hit the course, we are excited to welcome you all back to live races this fall!" according to their post.
