Team Infinit Athlete - Matt Gervais Wins Muskoka Marathon

 Team Infinit Athlete - Matt Gervais Wins Muskoka Marathon

Over the weekend, Matt Gervais won the Muskoka Marathon! Matt had one of those magical races where he was feeling stronger and stronger and his competition was coming unhinged as he put it.

When I asked him about the result and how it went, this was his response:

"Going into the race, the initial goal was to nail down an early BQ (Boston Marathon Qualifier) and pick up a new PB (Personal Best) in the process. I figured I am capable of more, so I used my judgement to ignore all the odds makers and run my own race from the gun and aim for what I assumed was a conservative 2:45 finishing time to get a pretty sizeable PB. I set myself up for it by running very even pacing up to the 1/2 marathon in 1:22:15 and felt phenomenal through half way in 7th position. I immediately began to pick up the pace going into the second half and reeled in the 5 guys ahead of me.

I’m very happy with the result on a cold and wet day!"

The organizers and volunteers of the Muskoka Marathon put together a safe and beautiful race, managing to follow all Provincial distance and safety protocols!

Congratulations to Matt Gervais!
