Thomas et Thibault s'emparent des titres du demi-marathon 2018
11 septembre 2018
The Saint-François Madawaska Marathon Festivities held its 43rd annual event on Sunday, September 2nd, which also served as the provincial half-marathon championship. The events of the day were a huge success and our provincial titles were awarded.
Bryan Thomas of North Tetagouche clocked 1: 16.52 to take the men's first place. Stéphane Boudreau of Caraquet and Niklag Ryabkov of Fredericton fought for second place with Boudreau coming in front of Ryabkov in what would have been a finished photo while Boudreau was at 1: 25.00 and Ryabkov in 1: 25.32. What a finish!
On the women's side, Isabelle Thibault of Edmundston was first in 1: 40.22. Louise Connely of Edmundston was second in 1: 42.34 and Susan Teakles of Sussex Corner took the final podium in a time of 1: 44.18.
This event was also part of the RunNB Super Series, with only two races remaining in 2018, the Fall 10k Classic in Fredericton on Sunday, September 23, and the 10th Race Dam at Perth Andover on Saturday, October 6th.
