Some successful international marathoners competed at yesterday's Women's 10K and 5K races in Toronto's Sunnybrook Park

It was a perfect, sunny and slightly cooler morning in Sunnybrook Park as 600 women participated in the Toronto Women’s 10K and 5K races yesterday. Among the winners were some big names in Canadian running:

 Brittany Moran of Etobicoke won the 10K in 35:21. Sarah Elliott of Guelph, Ont. was second, in 36:42, and Kathryn Dean, also of Guelph, was third, in 40:45.
