Hofbauer ran 2:16:48 in Hamburg today for an ~80s PB. His 5k splits were very even, looks like he got 100% out of himself today!

Add Anne-Marie Comeau (fresh off a 1:14:05 half) to the list of Canadians racing Ottawa. https://www.trackie.com/track-and-field/Articles/second-win-for-woodfine-comeau-is-for-real/16183/

That's a 2:32 if you round up like the thread title requests.

I'll call it a "sub-2:32," I worked hard for those nine seconds, Ben!

It's only a 2:32 in the context of the thread, of course. You're a 2:31 marathoner to me, Leslie. (But don't tell 2:04-marathoner Ryan Hall I said that!)

Trevor Hofbauer ran 2:16:48 Hamburg *not in Athletics Canada rankings
Reid Coolsaet 2:17:37 Ottawa
Thomas Toth 2:19:27 Rotterdam

sub-2:45 (W)
Rachel Cliff 2:26:56 CR Nagoya

Malindi Elmore 2:32:10 Houston
Sasha Gollish 2:32:54 Houston

Honourable mention

Note: for road race performances, time should always be rounded off (up) to the second and based on gun time, as that's what counts for prizing, etc. for elites
