Estimated read time: Less than a minute

MONACO — The world half-marathon championships have been canceled because China isn't able to host the races due to the coronavirus pandemic. World Athletics president Sebastian Coe says it is "no fault" of local organizers in China that the event can't be held in Yangzhou in November. The city will instead be given the rebranded world road running championships in 2027.
