Canadian results from the Philadelphia Marathon

30,000 people took the the streets of Philly today. Here are the top Canadian results

Today was the 25th Philadelphia race weekend. The race draws crowds of up to 30,000 and many Canadians head south of the border to get in a late fall race. 

Boston 2018 winner Des Linden made it to Philadelphia for the marathon, but sadly her clothes did not. She joked in a tweet that she spent her per diem on food instead of replacement clothes. Linden was joined by Boston, New York and Olympic marathon winner Meb Keflezighi. The athletes led a shakeout on Saturday morning and presented at the expo. 

The winner of the men’s race today was Tadesse Yai Dabi of New York in 2:14:46, and the women’s title went to Serkalem Abrha of Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2:32:52. Both winners set course records.
