Toronto Police Games Marathon
Toronto, Ontario
August 11, 1979
as reported by 1979 Canadian Marathon Annual

With some 140 five-runner relay teams and hundreds of entrants signed up for shorter distances, the marathoners in the 12 year old Toronto Police Games Marathon were a distinct minority. This was the last year for what was then the oldest continuous marathon in the country.

Marathon veteran Bob Moore of Toronto fought the wind to a 2:31:08 victory.

Patrick Smith of Sault Ste Marie, age 26, finished in 4:39:38.
