CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The annual Beach to Bay run has been impacted by coronavirus concerns.

Race director Doug McBee Jr. confirmed that the relay marathon has been moved from May 16 to October 10.

McBee said the May date was cutting it too close.

Every year since 1976, runners converge in Corpus Christi to take on the six-leg marathon.

It's become a tradition for many.

It has grown into one of the largest relay marathons in the United States.
