HALIFAX - A pair of Prince Edward Island runners finished in the top 10 of the Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon in Halifax on the weekend.
Summerside's Scott Clark placed third in 2:49:24. A veteran of all six Blue Nose runs, he has been on the podium for the past three runs after placing second in 2007 and 2008.
Jen Nicholson of Cornwall was the top women's finisher, ending up in eight place with a time of 3:00:07. It was Nicholson's first appearance at the marathon.
Clark said there was no catching the eventual winner, Scotsburn's David MacLennan, who has won the race four times. His winning time was 2:36:05.
"We saw him for the first 12 kilometres," Clark said. "He always goes out fast and we didn't really know what kind of shape he was in today. When he took off, he didn't fail. He was in shape, he was ready."
Charlottetown's Dave Gallant won the 20-29 age category.
