The best Canadian Running stories of 2019

A look back at this year's buzz-worthy running stories

As 2019 comes to a close, Canadian Running took a look back at the stories of 2019 that did well and those that we loved writing. It’s no surprise that Eliud Kipchoge’s historic 1:59 marathon topped this list in 2019. His accomplishment resonated with a general audience on top of running fans.

Beyond Kipchoge’s historic mark we saw a Banana Man lead the Toronto Marathon, found out why you should never date a trail runner and reported on stories of triumph and turbulence in running communities across the world.
