The Calgary marathon weekend was an important one for many Regina runners, not least of whom are Marsha Crossman and Jon Paradowski. Along with Jen Ruland, both were crucial in raising over $2000 for MitoCanada in the Superhero run in April. That fundraising effort culminated in the marathon weekend when Team Mito athletes set 7 world records on treadmill running. Congrats to all our other runners too! Here are the Marathon Matters results for the distances of half-marathon and up. Special shout out to Justin Cheshire, who has been trying to break the 1:30 mark in the half-marathon for a couple of years - with a lot of hard work and dedication, Justin finally crushed that time. Jordan Sperling also set a whopping PR in the half. The Calgary half-marathon was designated as the Canadian Half Marathon national championships - Jordan placed 18th in the Men's race!
