male winner: Brendan Lunty; 2:34:58
female winner: Lori Soderberg; 3:12:32
In the men’s marathon, past multiple winner Brendan Lunty won yet again. In the women’s division, Lori Soderberg – a solid runner in her own right, but never a Saskatchewan Marathon winner – won in 3:12:32. The event organizers had been trying for at least three years to get this year’s guest speaker – Bart Yasso – to visit us. He’s such a popular speaker that that proved to be very difficult, but he finally made the trip to Saskatoon this year. Bart is most famous for his “Yasso 800’s”. Bart went beyond the call of duty, making a number of appearances throughout the city before and on race day. There were, once again, record numbers of participants in all events, including the kids’ Marafun.
