Booth wins his fourth Manitoba Marathon

Michael Booth of Winnipeg won the 2010 Manitoba Marathon today and thrilled a large crowd at the University of Manitoba Stadium, taking his fourth men’s full marathon title and posting one of his best times, two hours and 32.32 minutes.

In close to ideal conditions, with the temperature in low 20s when he was on the course, Booth, 30, took the lead at about Mile 23 in the 26.2-mile event and won the race despite limited training due to his school and work commitments.

A total of 13,686 participants took part in this year’s Manitoba Marathon, which supports the Manitoba Marathon Foundation’s projects for Manitobans living with intellectual challenges.
