Longtime Runner Marks 14th Marathon

Marla Canvasser competed in the Detroit Free Press/Chemical Bank Marathon’s International Half-Marathon event for the 14th time on Oct. 21. Marla, 58, of West Bloomfield, says she loves being part of such a large athletic event in Detroit. “Crossing the bridge into Canada and the tunnel back to Detroit is a really unique experience,” she says. Marla, a health science teacher in Oakland Schools, was joined by her husband, Mark, 58, a fellow marathon enthusiast who has also done Iron Man and triathlon competitions, and other family members. The couple are members of Temple Beth El.

This was the 41st year of the marathon and more than 25,000 runners from 48 states and 19 countries gathered in Detroit to take part in a weekend packed with races. New this year was a competitive 1-mile race, along with the new Motor City Challenge Series, where runners could take part in more than one event.
