Fourth win for Kipkoech at Victoria Marathon

Follow along as Black Press provides video coverage from the races and results as they come in

Welcome to our Black Press coverage of the GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon.

Here is where you’ll find live video from the races and results as they come in, as well as the option of looking for individual runners’ results including the winners and their times once they cross the finish line.

Racers were up early Sunday morning to stretch things out and get to the starting line for the 8 a.m. start.

All the athletes were tightly packed at the starting line, but coming through Cook St. Village the pace setters have already begun making their move.

This marathon is broken into many smaller races as well. We’re also getting ready for the 8K run to start soon.

This is a long race and dozens of volunteers are helping racers stay hydrated at water stations set up throughout the course.
