The 2022 TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon will be live-streamed this coming Sunday, October 16th.
British announcer Geoff Wightman heads up a commentary team that includes 2016 Canadian Olympian Krista Duchene and leading run crew community leader Chris Dekoning.
Toronto is Canada’s most competitive marathon and this year includes a strong field up front ready to break the Canadian all-comers records.
Additionally, former Canadian marathon record holder Malindi Elmore of Kelowna will be looking to go as fast as possible, but will she take her record back? It was 2:24:50, but Vancouver’s Natasha Wodak bettered that time in Berlin two weeks ago with her 2:23:24 performance. Both ran in the Tokyo Olympic Games and fared well.
Canadian Rory Linkletter will toe the line. He competed in the 2022 World Athletics Championships in July, where he ran his personal best of 2:10:24. Will he move himself in with the likes of Cameron Levins and Trevor Hofbauer who have both run sub-2:10 in Toronto. Levins first broke the national record there when he ran 2:09:25 in 2018 and has since improved it to 2:07:09 at the Eugene World Championships.
Currently, Sunday’s forecast calls for a 40% chance of showers and cool temperatures.
