This week on The Rundown we recap an exciting weekend of racing in Toronto and Amsterdam. The TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon, which doubled as the Canadian Marathon Championships, returned after a three year hiatus and made for a day of thrilling racing. The TCS Amsterdam Marathon was the setting for marathon debuts by track stars Almaz Ayana and Genzebe Dibaba, resulting in the fastest women’s debut in history. And an unfortunate doping story gives host Maddy Kelly an opportunity to break down the Canadian anti-doping protocols based on her own humourous experience.
