Congratulations to Chris Balestrini, on a fine performance under difficult conditions at the Fast is Fun Marathon in Waterloo, on Sunday, Oct. 4. Chris ran 2:17:05, lowering his personal best time by 2.5 minutes and setting a new club record; the second time he has done this.
The sanctioned course consisted of a 1.7km loop that was repeated for the 42.2km distance. Chris ran the second half of the distance faster than the first (negative split) on the cool, wet morning, making his result even more impressive.
Well done...and here's to even faster times in the future!
