In The Region:

The government shutdown has led to the postponement of a Northeast Ohio sporting event.

The 2013 Towpath Marathon was scheduled for October 13.

But Tim Donovan, executive director for the Ohio Canal Corridor, says the event has been rescheduled for November 3. Donovan says the needs of the runners are among his main concerns in choosing to reschedule rather than cancel the event.

“Runners have trained, especially if you’re running a marathon, this whole year. They’ve chosen our race to go out and try to perform that marathon and what I feel is a deep disappointment that they would have if we couldn’t somehow how hold the race.”

Donovan says he is hopeful the government will be back in business by November 3, but has already scheduled a “plan c” if needed.  The Towpath Marathon would then take place on November 10.
