Runners planning to run the New York City Marathon received bad news after Mayor Michael Bloomberg canceled the race Friday due to the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Entries for the Philadelphia Marathon are already closed, however the marathon still has limited race spots available through charitable partners. Those interested can visit the Philadelphia Marathon Charity Partners page to find a charity spot. Charities have different requirements to race.

“We currently are directing anyone interested in taking part in the Philadelphia Marathon to our charity spots, which are still available,” said Melanie Johnson, Philadelphia Marathon Executive Director.

The 19th annual Philadelphia Marathon is scheduled to run Nov. 18 and 30,000 runners are expected to participate.
