Canadian results from London Marathon

Some fast Canadians ran Sunday's Virgin Money London Marathon

It was an exciting day at the Virgin Money London Marathon yesterday, and not only because Prince Harry was posing for pictures with the winners (though we admit to being pretty excited about that). Two Canadian age-groupers were first in their age categories: Allison Blackmore of Calgary (W50-54), who ran an impressive 2:55:04, and Liz Borrett of Kelowna, B.C. (W80-84), who ran an equally impressive 4:45:24.

Borrett has moved up an age group since last year’s Chicago Marathon, where she actually ran much slower.
Blackmore was also the top Canadian woman and first in her age group at last year’s New York City Marathon.

The fastest Canadians overall were Noel Loo (18-39) in 2:36:09, Chris Schwarz (45-49) in 2:42:45, and Mark Davis (18-39) in 2:44:59.

There were no Canadians in the elite field this year. Since no other Canadians placed in the top three in their age groups, we give you the top three Canadians in each age group.
