Canadian 10K Championships Livestream
In partnership with Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend is proud to co-host the 2021 Canadian 10K Championships on October 17 in Toronto.
In the women’s division, Natasha Wodak, two-time Olympian and the Canadian 8K record holder since 2013, is anticipated to lead the pack. With a 10K personal best of 31:59, Wodak is only 15 seconds shy of the national 10K record, held by her own coach, Lynn Kanuka-Williams since 1989. Vancouver’s Leslie Sexton and Scottish star Sarah Inglis are expected to push Wodak all the way.
The men’s division is expected to be fiercely competitive as they chase down the Canadian record (28:17), set by Newfoundland’s Paul McCloy in 1987. Tokyo Olympians Ben Preisner and Luc Bruchet will be battling for the win, alongside two-time Canadian Cross Country Champion Mike Tate, and Ben Flanagan, who will be seeking redemption after failing to secure a spot on the Tokyo 2020 team. Prepare for some sibling rivalry as Olympic bronze medallist, Evan Dunfee, racewalks against his brother, Adam Dunfee, who will run the course.
