Lamont Marshall Sets New Bermuda 10K Record

April 21, 2015

Lamont Marshall broke the Bermuda national 10k record while competing in the 2015 Toronto Yonge Street race in Canada on Sunday [April 19], with his time of 29:49 making him the first Bermudian to ever break the 30 minute barrier in a 10k.

Marshall made a very impressive showing, finishing 3rd overall in a field of some 6000 runners, with his time beating his own record of 31:01 set in Washington D.C. several years ago.

The 30-year-old runner is no stranger to breaking records, having set a number of other Bermuda records including the 3000 metre, 5000 metre and 10000 metre records.

Eric Gillis won the Toronto Yonge Street race in 29:15, with Matt Loiselle finishing second in 29:34, while the women’s race was won by Lanni Marchant in a time of 31:48, Tarah Korir was second in 32:56, while Lioudmila Kortchaguina place third in a time of 33:42.

    • A national record can be set anywhere in the world.There is another category for the fastest times actually recorded on island.

      Because he is a Bermudian...
      Bolt doesn't have to run his fastest time in Jamaica to be the fastest Jamaican...makes sense now??

        Great run, but the course is point-to-point and mostly downhill, so it would never be accepted as a road record of any kind. Road records must occur on looped courses, where the Start and Finish are within a certain (close) distance.

        • Sorry AJ but you are mis-informed.There is a separate category for point-to-point road records for 5K,5miles, and 10K. Please check the BNAA web-site for reference.

    Running in Bermuda is way harder then runing in Florida. Bermuda hills take so much more out of you. When i run in Florida i fell like i can run forever. I was runing 10 miles easy then i when to Bermuda for a 5k in Feb and had such a hard time.
