Peter Hanna has been doing marathons for a few years now. Turning 75 hasn't slowed him down much, as evidenced by his impressive finish in 4hrs 26min in this year's CB Fiddler's Run.

This year's Fiddler's was a roaring success. With a change of date, and a return to the old course around the harbour, there was a great surge in entries, with over 900 people participating, and over 100 in the marathon.

Thanks to Nick Burke and all the volunteers who worked so hard to make this a huge success!

Thanks to James Forsey for the great photo.

The marathon winners were both doctors this year. Dr. Kate MacInnes is set to be Cape Breton's new hematologist starting in November, and has been running at a high level for years. Dr. Jeff Ratushny is from CB but works as an Internal Medicine specialist in Bridgewater, and was doing his first marathon. Congrats to both, and to all our other race winners and participants.
