The star Canadian, the former national record holder in the 10,000m at 27:07.51, was set to make his half-marathon debut in Toronto with hopes of attaining the IAAF World Half-Marathon Championships standard in the process. Instead, he will be on the lead vehicle taking in the marathon in hopes of making his debut over 42.2K in Toronto in 12 months.


The 28-year-old says the injury is not serious but is taking the week off running as a precaution. He was out for the second half of 2016 after having surgery on his foot following the 2016 Olympic Trials and has been making strides in returning to top form in the months since including a victory at September’s Canadian 5K Road Race Championships.
