Saturday morning was the perfect day for a race at the lululemon Toronto 10K. That race, which is essentially one big party, was a huge success.

First across the line was 30-year-old Jean Marie Vianney, who finished in a time of 29:58. Bonsa Gonfa, an Ethiopian-born athlete who runs for Toronto Olympic Club, followed him in second in 30:05, three seconds ahead of Phil Parrot-Migas. Canadian marathon record-holder Cam Levins finished in fifth in 30:21.

Levins is returning from injury and said post-race that he’s healthy and happy with his results. “I felt fine the whole way, it’s just that the fitness isn’t there yet. I wanted to win. I think everybody wants to do that. I am not disappointed, I am fine with it.”

 

In the women’s results Salome Nyirarukundo crossed the finish line in 34:03 to win the race. Nyirarukundo was fourth at the Ottawa Marathon only three weeks ago. Men’s winner Vianney greeted her with a hug and a huge smile post-race (both have only been in Canada less than a year). Rachel Hannah, who is also fresh off of the Ottawa Marathon, finished in second in 34:29 and third place went to Gladys Tarus in 34:38.
