Thomas Toth and Emily Setlack take 2016 Canadian Half Marathon Titles

Calgary, Alta - Thomas Toth of Lakefield, Ont., and Emily Setlack of Cold Lake, Alta., won Canadian titles Sunday in Calgary, Alta., at the Subaru Calgary Half Marathon. This was Toth’s first national title, while Setlack regained the half marathon title she first won in 2010.

Before his breakout 1:04:26 half marathon this past January, few people had heard of Thomas Toth. Sunday’s dominant victory made another statement that he is amongst the best distance runners in Canada. Toth on his race, “I wasn’t sure what to expect with the altitude, so I just wanted to go out and make it aggressive. I made it competitive early on.”
