According to multiple reports, the race will not take place on Monday, April 20 due to coronavirus, and it's now possible it is held on a Monday in September instead. The race has never been canceled or postponed in its 124-year history.

WCVB in Boston was first to report the news.

A decision on a new date is hoped to be made by the end of the week, but since so many towns are involved there are many logistics to work out.
