male winner: Vince Cole; 2:52:53
female winner: Tobi Rempel; 3:18:50
Tobi Rempel set a PB in winning the women’s division of the what was now known as (just for a couple of years) the Saskatchewan International Marathon. Many friends and family applauded Rempel as she finished. One of the supporters was her eleven year old son, Zak, who had completed the 10Km event earlier, in 1:01:47.
The course was a unique one this year, as it utilized a four kilometre loop clockwise through the University of Saskatchewan campus. As well, runners ran up and then back down, the University Bridge, on either side of the campus loop.
Vince Cole won his fourth Saskatchewan Marathon in five years. His winning time was a few minutes slower than the previous year, but he was to say that the course was definitely tougher.
In the half-marathon, the women’s winner was Renee Schnell in 1:28:08. The men’s winner was Jason Warick, with a time of 1:24:06.
Jason Tomaz (37:39) and Chantel Gislason (41:15) were winners in the 10Km distance.
