Canadian Running - - RUNNING THE NUMBERS -

Two is the num­ber of Cana­dian men in 2016 who ran a marathon faster than PAULA RAD­CLIFFE’s world record time of 2:15:25. Their names are fa­mil­iar by now: Olympians ERIC GIL­LIS and REID COOL­SAET. Mean­while zero women ran sub-2:30 this year. Per­haps in part due to Olympic peak­ing back in 2015, this ap­pears an off year for Cana­dian marathon­ers (Gil­lis’s top 10 fin­ish in Rio notwith­stand­ing).
