Speed River’s Eric Gillis and Reid Coolsaet confirmed their plans to run the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on Sept. 26.
They made the announcement at a town hall meeting of Guelph’s running community on May 25.
Coolsaet has battled an injury for most of the season, and decided on aiming for a fall marathon rather than risk anything on the track this summer. He won the Canadian marathon championship in 2009 and represented Canada at the world championships in Berlin.
Gillis made a stellar debut at the 42.195K distance in January, running an impressive 2:13:52 at the Chevron Houston Marathon.
