Moncton, N.B.’s Rochelle Johnston warmed up for the Bermuda Marathon, which she won, by racing the event weekend’s mile and 10K in the two days leading up to the 42K.
In addition to winning the marathon in 3:17:58, Johnston won the Bermuda Triangle Challenge for the lowest cumulative time across the mile, 10K and marathon distances. The three races went off on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (Jan. 12-14), in that order.
The 33-year-old covered the one-mile in 6:03, for the win, and the 10K in 49:11 for a weekend racing distance total of close to 54K.

According to Maritimerunner.ca, the marathon win, with the race taking place in Hamilton, the British Overseas Territory’s capital city, was Johnston’s first. The Canadian is coached by American long-distance runner and sub-70:00 half-marathoner Neely Spence Gracey.
