Marathon Weekend: Mississauga vs Toronto

Here is an article that ran this week in the Thursday Star and online…
You may notice I was quoted in it.

I had a nice chat with the Stars Urban Affairs writer, Patty Winsa. Obviously there is a lot more that could be discussed here and it seems to be of most popular concern that Goodlife and Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathons should have merged into one large Fall Marathon. Too late for that now. It’s unfortunate because the press surrounding marathons in our GTA is more often negative than positive despite the many positives.

I am very curious to see what the actual numbers are next week. I plan to compare actual runners completing the events with those of last years. I have a feeling both will be way down.

What are your thoughts?

FYI, I am running the Goodlife Toronto event as a 3:40 Pace Bunny
