Chilly Half and Frosty 5K 2019 results

The Chilly Half and Frosty 5K are southern Ontario's way of bidding a hopeful goodbye to winter weather

The sun came out for this morning’s Chilly Half and Frosty 5K in Burlington, Ont., and the lack of wind made for some excellent finishing times, despite a partial diversion due to construction on the course. Falling six weeks before the Boston Marathon, the half is a magnet for some of southern Ontario’s big names as well as recreational athletes looking for a tuneup race. Toronto’s Sami Jibril and Hamilton’s Victoria Coates broke the tape in the half, while Phil Parrot-Migas of Mississauga (who also won in 2018) and Tanis Bolton of Paris, Ont. were the winners of the 5K.
