The Latest: Astros to allow 100% capacity starting May 25
The Grizzlies announced the expanded capacity Monday after consulting with the Shelby County Health Department and the NBA league office. That’s a bump up from 20% the Grizzlies had in the regular season. Tickets for the play-in game go on sale Tuesday.
Mask and social distancing still will be required inside FedExForum.
The New York Road Runners announced Monday that the 50th running of the New York City Marathon will be staged on Nov. 7.
NYRR says a modified field size of 33,000 runners was determined after consulting with state and city officials.
Race director Ted Metellus says the return of the race after a one-year hiatus “will showcase our great city’s strength, inspiration, and determination.”
The race was canceled last year because of the coronavirus pandemic. Runners registered for last year’s marathon were provided the option to receive a full refund of their entry fee or a guaranteed complimentary entry for the 2021, 2022, or 2023 New York City Marathon. This year’s race will accommodate all runners who chose to run in 2021.
Among the more than 30,000 runners who were registered prior to the cancellation last year, NYRR said 54% chose to run this year.
In order to prioritize the 2020 marathon runners who were already guaranteed entry, a drawing will not be held for this year’s marathon. Registration for runners with guaranteed entry will begin June 8 and last for one week.
