With cash on the line, a course record in each distance fell on Friday and Saturday at Maritime Race Weekend.

With a course record falling in the opening event in the sunset 5K, new marks continued to be set through Saturday including both the men’s and women’s CRs in the half-marathon and marathon. The pirate-themed race weekend is held annually in Eastern Passage, N.S., just outside of Halifax.

James Murphy and Emily Hamilton won the longest of Maritime Race Weekend’s events, clocking 2:37:56 and 3:02:02, taking a combined 21 minutes off the previous course records, which dated as far back as 2014. Both winners won $500 for the win, plus an additional $100 for the course record.

In the half-marathon, Graeme Allardice won in 1:18:22 as Rayleen Hill finished second overall, and first among women, in 1:24:05. The Tidal 15K trail race is scheduled for Saturday afternoon and makes its debut in 2017 meaning a course record is guaranteed to be set.
