Record Holder Trained On Tely Route

In 1975 Jerome Drayton set the Canadian Marathon record of 2:10:09 (December 7 in Fukuoka, Japan), a mark that has now stood for almost 37 years.

Two years earlier in 1973 Drayton ran 2:13:27 in the Canadian Marathon Championships right here St. John's!  The course was an out and back following the Tely 10 route.
