The Toronto Marathon Returns
By Ben Kaplan - February 16, 2022

Since 1977, the Toronto Marathon has been synonymous with good times and fast times, one of Canada’s best big city races. Drawing participants from around the world, and running icons like Kathrine Switzer, the Toronto Marathon on May 1, will be Canada’s first large-scale in-person event since the start of the pandemic.

The pent-up demand has race director Jay Glassman and his team excited to be among the first large-scale events to welcome runners back after a two year absence.

“The city has changed over the course of the COVID pandemic, but running has only increased as has the desire of Canadian runners for a big in-person event to compete in,” says Glassman, who has been race director of the Toronto Marathon since 1995. “It’s a return to running, a return to racing, and I can say that our entire team is looking forward to welcoming runners back.”

A distance for every ability, the Toronto Marathon offers a fast Boston-qualifying marathon, half marathon, 5 and 10K events. The multiple distances are all offered on a single day, May1, and the event is fun and imbued with positive feelings as runners make their way through the many neighbourhoods of Toronto to the finish line at the Exhibition Grounds. With robust cheering from the thousands of spectators lining the point-to-point course and more than 1,200 enthusiastic volunteers, the Toronto Marathon is where this author, in fact, scored his lifetime PB, finally breaking three hours in 2016. Indeed, the Toronto Marathon is poised to become the running world’s Coachella—a once in a lifetime running event that’s guaranteed to bring runners together from far and wide.

“We know, given everything that we’ve all been through over that past two years, that runners are looking forward participating in a ‘live event’ with other competitors in a race that draws people from over 60 countries,” says Glassman, adding that, for many new racers who picked up running during the pandemic, his event will be their first taste of the best part of our sport. “It’s an exciting time to be a race director. It’s an exciting time to welcome people back to our sport.”

“LU’s Zongo breaks another school record, qualifies for U Sports Nationals”

Laurentian’s Indoor Track and Field team returned to action this past weekend, attending competitions at the University of Toronto and the University of Guelph. Despite having their competitive season delayed again by the pandemic, the team had a solid weekend, returning with a new school record, three silver medals and eight new personal bests.
The team was once again led by third-year Law and Justice student, Marvin Zongo (Burkina Faso). At the Guelph Open, Zongo broke the school’s triple jump record with a mark of 14.69 metres on his sixth and final attempt. This result eclipsed the previous school record of 14.57 metres, set by Ian Janssen in 1996. The performance earned Zongo a silver medal and also qualified him for the U Sports national championship to be held in St. John, New Brunswick at the end of March. Zongo is currently ranked third in the nation in the triple jump and fourth in the long jump.
Also at the Guelph Open, Tristan Routhier (Saint-Sixte, Quebec) earned Laurentian’s second silver medal on the weekend by running 7.33 seconds in the Men’s 60 metre final. Alexandre Noel de Tilly also qualified for the final, placing 4th in 7.36 seconds.
At the Hal Brown Memorial Meet at the University of Toronto, Justin Graenert (Newmarket, ON) also won silver in the 600 metres with a time of 1:27.07.
The women’s team had several strong performances at the Hal Brown meet as well, as they returned to action for the first time since November. Sarah Booth placed 7th in the 1,000 metres (3:08.15); Angela Mozzon placed 9th in the 1,500 metres (5:19.82); and Kristen Mrozewski placed 11th in the 600 metres (1:42.79).
Head Coach, Darren Jermyn commented, “I’m very proud of the resilience out entire team has shown over the past two months. They had to shift their focus in December and January to training mostly outdoors or independently in home gyms or treadmills. Thankfully, we had three excellent weeks of practice as a team on our home indoor track prior to this return to competition. Seeing eight new personal bests across all event areas is definitely a good sign.”
The Indoor Track and Field Team will return to action this weekend attending meets at York University and the University of Toronto.
