Brian Walker and Nicole Walker share not only a love for running, but are also connected to each other as sibling-in-laws.
The 2021 Manitoba Marathon was a welcome sight for the running community since the 2020 edition was cancelled due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s Manitoba Marathon was the first in-person running event to take place in Canada since the pandemic shut down the majority of sporting events back in March of 2020.
Brain crossed the finish line in first place to win the Manitoba Marathon men’s race with a time of 2:28:24. Birian, who lives in East St. Paul, is a alumni of the Manitoba Bisons cross country and track teams.
Nicole, who also lives in East St. Paul, won the Manitoba Marathon women’s race in a time of 2:52:55. Nicole is an experience triathlete and has competed internationally.
