P.E.I. marathon draws thousands of runners
P.E.I.'s annual marathon this weekend drew in an estimated 2,500 runners from across Canada and the United States.
Myrtle Jenkins-Smith, one of the organizers, said it's become an international event.
"We are a Boston [marathon] qualifier so we have people that come here to qualify for Boston," Jenkins-Smith told CBC News.
"We had the largest percentage of marathoners in eastern Canada qualify [for the Boston marathon] last year, so that's pretty exciting for P.E.I."
