Good Afternoon Boston Runners and Supporters,
As widely reported, the Boston Marathon organizers in conjunction with local and state officials are appropriately evaluating contingency plans in light of ongoing COVID-19 virus concerns. Marathon Tours & Travel is making parallel contingency plans with our Boston Hotel partners that you have reserved a room(s) with.
When we receive an official update from the Boston Athletic Association, we will notify you immediately should it impact your current plans. If the 2020 Boston Marathon is required to postpone to a later date in 2020 or defer to 2021, we will provide you with frequent updates regarding your options.
As you would expect, we are receiving a high volume of calls and emails based on rumors and speculation. If it is not an emergency, we ask you to refrain from calling or emailing for an update.
Our clients safety and well-being is very important to us. Thank you in advance for your patience and support.
Your Marathon Tours & Travel Team
I did not get this email. I wonder why? It makes me want to email them. Does this qualify as an emergency?
I hope they find a way to transfer our current bookings to the fall race date. The hotel I booked does not have any rooms available the weekend of Sept 12/13. I wonder if Marathon Tours scooped them all up today, because they had rooms available this morning when I checked.
Seriously ,stop whining! It's just a race you massive douche bag.
