Canada Canadian men at 2011 Ottawa 10k

Ottawa Race Weekend will host Canada’s top long distance runners this year.

With fast times in both marathon and 10k distances, there are a number of Canadian men to keep an eye on during the Saturday evening 10k race on May 28.

Among them is Guelph-based Eric Gillis, the first Canadian to win the Vancouver Sun Run 10k since 1998 with a time of 29:06. Running close behind him with a finishing just nine seconds slower (29:15) is Dylan Wykes, of Vancouver.

Another athlete to watch is Toronto-based Matthew Loiselle, who finished second behind fellow Canadian Reid Coolsaet at the Montreal half-marathon on April 17 with a time of 1:05:28. Fellow Canadian Réjean Chiasson also ran Montreal with a time of 1:06:57.

Steeplechase champion Robert Watson may prove to be a worthy competitor in the 10k distance. He ran 2:16:17 at the Houston marathon on January 19, finishing fourth overall. Not a bad result for his first attempt at the marathon distance.
