Wildfire Cause Western States Cancellation

This week's wildfires across Northern California has caused it's first race cancellation (but not a MTB race):
"The Western States Endurance Run, a 100-mile [trail running] race scheduled to begin Saturday, was scrapped late Wednesday for the first time in its 35-year history because of the 'health risks that have been associated with these wildfires,' race officials said in a statement."
Via SF Gate.

Currently there are no plans to cancel this weekend's CCCX or Skyline races.
