MARSians represented all over Ontario yesterday!
At The Hamilton Road 2 Hope Marathon, MARSian Rebecca Francis ran a Boston Marathon qualifying standard of 3:34:20 and was the second place woman in her age category. Lia Kutzsher also completed the race with a Boston qualifying time and was third in her age group, only a few months after racing Ironman Muskoka. Sharon Bennett, though injured battled her way to a marathon finish. Congrats to these intrepid MARSians.
In Toronto, MARS took park in the third race in the Ontario Masters XC Series at the Sunnybrook 8K. Leading the way were the men’s 40-49 team of Troy Cox, Chris Watson, Pierre Mikhail and Tony Marra. The team is 2/2 this season winning both series races they have competed in. In addition, MARS had 2nd place finish in the women’s 30-39, and 3rd place finishes in women’s 40-49 and 50-59.
There are two races left in the XC season – November 15 in Etobicoke at the Ontario XC Championships and November 28 at the Canadian XC Championships. With these two races remaining, MARS sits in 3rd place in The Breslin Cup standings.
