Yemane Tsegay, 29, of Ethiopia, broke two records with his finish time of 2:06:54 – the men's Canadian soil record of 2:07:05 set last year in Toronto and the Ottawa marathon course record of 2:08:04 also set in 2013. 

Tigist Tufa, 27, also from Ethiopia, broke the course record for women with a time of 2:24:31. The previous course record of 2:25:30 was set in 2013.

"We are thrilled with today's results," says Manny Rodrigues, Elite Athlete Coordinator for the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend. "Bringing together a very competitive field of world-class racers and breaking the Canadian soil and Ottawa course records take our marathon event to a whole new level on the international racing scene."

Winners of this year's Canadian National Champions were Eric Gills, 34, of Guelph, with a time of 2:13:47 and Rhiannon Johns, with a time of 2:47:11.
