England Selections announced for Toronto Marathon

England Selections announced for Toronto Marathon

England Athletics are delighted to announce we have selected a full complement of athletes to compete at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. The race will take place on Sunday 27th September and be included in a Nations challenge again with Canada, Mexico and hopefully the USA. This is the second year that an England selection group will compete at this event.

The team is as follows:

Men: Matthew Pierson (Holmfirth) and Ben Fish (Blackburn)

Women: Helen Decker (Ipswich Jaffa) and Laura Cowley (Herts Phoenix)

The flat and fast features of this marathon have ensured that many athletes run a personal best time.  The event both starts and finishes in the heart of downtown, at City Hall.  Toronto Waterfront was one of only 4 sub-2:10 marathons in North America in 2007 and was awarded a prestigious IAAF Silver label for 2008, as one of the 50 best road races in the world!
