The New York City Marathon has officially been canceled.
After endless criticism and social media backlash, Mayor Michael Bloomberg made the formal announcement Friday that the annual run would not take place—for the first time in 40 years—due to Hurricane Sandy.
And just as folks took to Twitter to protest the marathon before it's cancellation, celebs, New Yorkers and tons of tweeters are sharing their reaction on the social media site now that the plug's been pulled on the 26.2 mile dash.
Zac Posen: "NYC marathon is cancelled!! Time to put the energy and resources towards those in need #Sandy"
