By | Edmonton 10k, Elite Athletes | No Comments

If you are planning to cheer on the runners at the lululemon Edmonton 10k race on July 7th, here are some of the names and bib numbers to watch out for!

In the men’s race, Reid Coolsaet will be back to defend his title against a very intriguing field. Favourites to knock Coolsaet from the winners circle will be Evan Esselink (the 2018 runner-up at the Edmonton 10K), Cameron Levins (current Canadian Marathon Champion & Record Holder), Rob Watson (lululemon Global Run Ambassador), Chris Balestini (recent runner-up at the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon), Bonsa Gonfa (runner up at the lululemon Toronto 10K) and Leonard Chesoo (ACAC Male Rookie of the Year).

For the women, watch out for Natasha Wodak to add to her recent Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon, Canadian 10K and 10,000m Championship wins from this year, Jess O’Connell (2016 Canadian Olympian from Calgary & Canadian 3000m record holder), Rosie Edwards (who runs out of Colorado) & Gladys Tarus (3rd place at the lululemon Toronto 10K). With some pretty tough competition coming from local Alberta runners and runners from across the country, it will be a race to watch!
