SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The Santa Fe Triathlon has run its course before even starting.

KRQE-TV in Albuquerque reported (https://bit.ly/1JiS1AS) Sunday that city officials have decided to cancel this year’s triathlon.

The Genoveva Chavez Community Center, which has served as the venue over the years, is undergoing maintenance work.

Organizers had been working the past several months to find an alternative route.

They say the race would have to be in a busier, high-traffic area of Santa Fe around Sal Perez.

The city says there is no course that would guarantee participants’ safety in the bike and running portions of the triathlon.

Parks and Recreation Department director Robert Carter says organizers will start planning next year’s race.
