Organizers have announced they have indefinitely postponed the Drake Relays that had been scheduled for April in Des Moines.

Drake University said Wednesday that officials made the decision to protect the “health, safety and well-being” of participants and fans amid concerns about the coronavirus.

The event was scheduled for April 22-25, primarily at Drake Stadium.

Organizers said they would work with local, state and national officials to reschedule the event when it’s safe for all participants.
