Back in the fall of 2010, when I thought we were on the verge of seeing a new Canadian men’s marathon record, I decided to dig a little into the history of Canadian marathoning. Here are Canada’s all-time top marathon performances under 2:13.
This morning in Rotterdam, Dylan Wykes ran a 2:10:47 marathon, an Olympic-qualifier and the second fastest marathon ever by a Canadian.
All-time sub-1:04 half marathons by Canadian men.
Eight years ago, the adidas ad read, “6:54 at age 89. 5:40 at age 92. The Kenyans had better watch out for him when he turns 100.” Now 100, Fauja Singh runs Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront this weekend.
