Upwards of 40,000 participants were expected to take part in this year’s run.

This year’s winners were:

  • Men: Justin Kent
  • Women: Natasha Wodak
  • Wheelchair Division:  Balraj Zimich

And while there is more rain in the forecast for this week, it remains to be seen if we’ll get another surprise visit like this from Mother Nature.
