Results from Ontario’s newest marathon

Jason Faber and Sarah Donaldson were the winners of the inaugral Georgina Marathon

Ontario’s newest marathon took place Sunday in Georgina, Ont., and it was Toronto’s Jason Faber and Sarah Donaldson who were the winners of the inaugural event. It was a cool, windy day in Georgina, but on a flat, fast course, many runners were still able to sneak in under their Boston Marathon qualifying times.
