The City to Surf has been canned for the second year in a row due to the ongoing threat of COVID.
Organisers of one of Perth's biggest participation events Activ said the decision to cancel the event again was a difficult one.
“However, the health and safety of all Western Australians comes first so we believe this is the most responsible decision. As we have recently experienced, the uncertainty and challenges we face due to COVID-19 are likely to continue for some time.
“Everyone has a responsibility to do whatever we can to keep the WA community as free of COVID-19 as possible."
Activ has asked those who planned to take part to send any donations to www.activ.asn.au/donations.
