Weekend Recap.


Howdy! Here’s a quick recap of the weekend. It’s a little of this and a little of that…

Toronto Marathon

Eric Gillis took a shot at Jerome Drayton’s Canadian record (which has been around for 39 years), but he fell short by about a minute. Gillis ran 2:11:20, and the longstanding record is 2:10:09.

However, a world record was set in Toronto! Michal Kapral joggled the half marathon in 1:20:40. For more on joggling, be sure to check out Wild Juggling.

Full results of the Toronto Marathon are available here.

Empire State Marathon

The Empire State Marathon tested out a new course this year. It was a blustery day and the winning times were a little slower than past years. The men’s race was won in 2:42:34 and the women’s race was won in 3:13:27. I’m looking forward to hearing some feedback on the new course.

Full results of the Empire State Marathon are available here.

Warrior Dash World Championship

This race is a bit… different. A 5k on mountainous terrain with 12 obstacles… and $100,000 in prize money!

Ultra, road, track, Obstacle star Max King took the win, along with $30,000 in prize money. Kimber Mattox won the women’s race. Results, times and prize money for the Top 5 are available here.

    It’s always great seeing joggling in the news, especially when it’s a world record. Thanks for the link! And by the way Jason, the way you’re going with this blog, you may put Runner’s World out of business. Good luck with your next big race!
