The 2015 Canal Run saw a seventh straight year of a record-high number of participants. The final number tallied right at 843, and it included some incredible performances.
Congratulations to all of the winners, including a fourth win (third in last four years) for Jonathan Kilpela in the 10-mile run. Jessica Nankervis was the female 10-mile run winner, breaking a seven-year streak for Amy Janeshek.

A record was also broken in the men’s five-mile race as Mark Hallmann of Amasa, Michigan finished in 28 minutes 54 seconds, an incredible 5:46 per mile pace. On the women’s side it was Lisa Wiitala taking home the top spot.
