The Boston Marathon is officially canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This is the first cancellation in the history of the 124-year race.

Organizers had postponed the marathon from April 20 to Sept. 14.

They say instead they will offer a "virtual event" in which participants who verify that they ran 26.2 miles on their own will receive their finisher's medal.
