Aside from the United Airlines Guam Marathon, a number of other prominent tourism and sporting events have also been postponed due to ongoing concerns with the coronavirus.

These include:

  • 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);
  • Guam Swimming Federation Micronesian Swimming Championships; and
  • 40th APL Smokin’ Wheels

Out of an abundance of caution, the Guam Visitors Bureau said it decided to postpone
these signature events as well as sponsorship for events such as the United Airlines Guam Marathon.

“The health and safety of our residents and visitors remains our top priority,” said GVB
President and CEO Pilar Laguaña. “We have suspended event sponsorship support and
postponed our signature events until the global climate of COVID-19 improves. We will
continue to work closely with our partners and look forward to supporting these events at a better time.”

Of course, the Guam Swimming Federation Micronesian Swimming Championships was also postponed due to ongoing issues with the Hagatna public swimming pool.
