The 5th annual Collingwood Half Marathon & 10K was a tremendous success with nearly 600 runners of all ages participating in the half marathon, 10K and the 2K kids race.
The fresh air, brisk weather was typical for October but actually quite conducive to running fast times with the half being won by Ross Bain in 1:18:32 and a 1:32 coming from top female Sarree Sasson. The top 10K runners were Nicolas Peleato with a 36:13 and Katherine Ahokas coming in at 40:26. As well the kids were very fast in the 2K race with winners Cameron Bennet at 8:33 and Piper Mitchell at 9:25!
There were so many personal triumphs and celebrations such as the young woman who celebrated her 21st birthday by running 21 km!
Our 100+ volunteers were their usual amazing selves providing marshalling, aid station support bike patrol and setup/teardown of the course. As well we would like to thank our strong OPP contingent without whom we couldn’t operate a road race.
People are loving our small town country race with the big city amenities. As a partner race to the Goodlife Fitness Toronto Marathon we draw on a wealth of experience and resources to make this a great race experience!
See you October 6th, 2018!
