The University of Okoboji has announced that several events scheduled for July 17 will not be held this year. The U of O's marathon, triathlon, half-marathon and 10K run were called off due to COVI-19 safety concerns for the participants, volunteers and spectators, according to a statement from U of O officials.

"All parties involved in this decision are incredibly proud of this event's growth since its inception in 1978 and have a clear commitment to the event returning in 2022," the university said in a statement.
