I agree with Kelly's letter to the editor below. The volunteers are awesome, the fans, although sparse, are enthusiastic, and those karaoke guys rocked! Mike
Dear Editor; As a participant in the 2010 Manitoba Marathon, I feel it is crucial to send out a huge thank you to, first, all of the hundred of volunteers who make this day such a great event, from handing out water, to making sure all participants are OK at the end of their races. These people are amazing.
Second, to all of the citizens of Winnipeg who get up at the crack of dawn to cheer on and encourage all runners, you truly make a difference.
Third, I want to say a huge thank you to the homeowner on Harrow Street, who, for the last two years has set up his karaoke machine and delighted the masses with his talent.
I look forward to seeing him each time I run and he does not disappoint.
