CORONAVIRUS THREAT LEADS TO EVENT POSTPONEMENTS

While the world continues to handle the sudden outbreaks of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Guam’s Department of Public Health has issued a press release addressing what the island is doing to stay on top of the threat of the virus. This has led to a number of prominent sporting event postponements.

List of affected events include:
– FIBA Asia Qualifiers: Guam Basketball vs. Hong Kong (postponed)
– 2020 United Guam Marathon
– Guam Swimming Federation Micronesian Swimming Championships
– 40th APL Smokin’ Wheels
– Guam Ko’ko’ Kids Fest (postponed until further notice)
– Guam Micronesia Island Fair (postponed until further notice)
– Travel Talks Digital Global Summit (postponed until further notice)

Statement from UGM – As Guam’s largest international sports event, we have been closely monitoring the situation of COVID-19 (coronavirus) within the Asia Pacific region and how this issue affects both our international and local participants. After consulting with key stakeholders in the public and private sectors, we have made the decision to postpone the 2020 United Airlines Guam Marathon (UGM). The 2020 UGM originally scheduled for Sunday, April 5,2020, has been rescheduled for Sunday, September 13, 2020. We will continue to work closely with our stakeholders, United Airlines, Guam Visitors Bureau, and the Government of Guam to ensure that the 2020 event remains a successful event for everyone.
