Boston Marathon bombing memorial

A man wearing a protective mask runs past a memorial to victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, on the anniversary of the 2013 bombing which killed three and injured over 260 people, in Boston, Wednesday, April 15, 2020. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the date of this year's race was moved to September.

Next Monday is Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts, and in a more normal time would be the day when thousands of runners enjoy one of the sports most prestigious marathons, the Boston Marathon.

The world’s oldest annual marathon is breaking tradition this year because of coronavirus concerns and has rescheduled for Monday, Sept. 14, the first postponement in its history.
