The champions of the 2015 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon are Ishhimael Chemton (Kenya) and nineteen-year-old Shure Demise from Kenya.
The 26th annual Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon took place downtown Toronto Sunday morning with 26,000 runners ready to race at the start. Conditions were different and cold for this time of year with temperatures hovering near 3C at the start.
This year’s running of the Toronto marathon is the first one since the race earned its status as an IAAF Gold Label event– it’s the only Canadian marathon to have achieved this status. This year’s race also hosted the Canadian marathon championships with top Canadians also running to reach Olympic qualifying standards to send them to Rio (2:12:50 for men and 2:29:50 for women).
