Oakville man dies at race finish line
By Joe FRIESEN, Monday, October 17, 2005, Page A10
A 36-year-old Oakville man died after running a half-marathon yesterday.
The man collapsed after crossing the Toronto Marathon finish line at Queen's Park. He was treated by paramedics and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
"He made it right to the end, crossed the finish line and collapsed," police Staff Sergeant John BOYCE said.
The man's family requested that his name not be made public.
Marathon organizers said the man collapsed between 10: 30 a.m. and 11 a.m. after completing the course. Race director Jay GLASSMAN said medical staff were on the scene and treated the man immediately.
"They basically caught him as he collapsed," Mr. GLASSMAN said. "We responded within seconds, and the team did what they could." Mr. GLASSMAN said the man arrived at Mount Sinai within 20 minutes.
It is the second time in as many years that a man has died during the race. Last year, Scott LABRON, 42, of Guelph, Ontario, died while running the half-marathon.
"When stuff like this happens, it's hard." Mr. GLASSMAN said. "It's still statistically very rare that someone will die at an event like this, but it's happened at every major marathon.... There's really nothing you can do about it."
He added that organizers trust that participants are fit and have been training in preparation for the race.
More than 1,600 people completed the full marathon yesterday and 3,758 finished the half-marathon.

Oakville man dies in marathon
Two other runners have died in Toronto race in the last four years
witnesses: say it took too long to get collapsed man to hospital
By Donovan VINCENT, Staff Reporter
For the second year in a row, a runner has died in the Toronto Marathon.
The unidentified 36-year-old Oakville man was running in the half-marathon yesterday morning with thousands of others and collapsed moments after crossing the finish line on Queen's Park Circle, just south of Hoskin Ave.
Three people have died in the event in the last four years.
Medical personnel working with the race rushed to his aid, first trying cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, then a defibrillator. As an ambulance tried to get through the crowd, he was placed on a stretcher while health workers continued trying cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and administering oxygen. He was carried on a stretcher to Wellesley St. and then to Mount Sinai Hospital with no vital signs, Toronto Emergency Medical Services said.
A number of witnesses: said it took too long for the man to be put in an ambulance and taken to hospital.
"It did take a long time," said Janet DOGON of Thornhill. She was at the finish line because her daughter and a friend ran the half-marathon
Race director Jay GLASSMAN said some members of the medical team in place for the race -- 30 registered nurses and about seven doctors -- attended to the man and there was an ambulance on site.
GLASSMAN said he can't comment on the time it took to get the man to hospital because he doesn't have all the details.
Last year 42-year-old Scott LABRON of Guelph, a married father of four, died minutes before crossing the finish line. He was also running in the half-marathon. It's suspected he suffered a heart attack, but no cause of death was revealed after test results.
In 2001, 50-year-old Aurora businessman Bob HARTWELL, who had run the Boston Marathon several times, died of a heart attack running in the full marathon.
"Things like this happen, unfortunately. It's statistically rare when it happens," GLASSMAN said, adding big marathons like those in Boston and New York have had fatalities.
"I went to watch the New York Marathon years ago and two people died," he said.
Before the race, organizers were expecting about 2,500 for the 42.195-kilometre marathon, about 5,000 in the half-marathon, up to 1,500 for the 5-kilometre and around 1,200 for the relay. The marathon and half-marathon begin at Mel Lastman Square in North York.
GLASSMAN said the deaths are "no reflection" on the Toronto Marathon course. "There are marathons at high altitudes, low altitudes, in good weather in bad weather," he said. "We had good conditions. It was windy, which was a hindrance, but that's about it."
Runners must sign a waiver before taking part.
But with thousands of runners in the race "it's not feasible to have them all go to a cardiologist or get a physical before the race," GLASSMAN said.
The Toronto Waterfront Marathon, which staged its fourth annual race last month, has had no fatalities.
David CHERUIYOT of Kenya finished first in the main event for the men with an official time of 2: 17:12.2. Rito Regules JARDON of Toluca, Mexico, was second and Danny KASSAP of Toronto third.
A Canadian came first in the women's marathon. Lioudmila KORTCHAGUINA of Thornhill captured the women's title with a time of 2: 37:17.7, ahead of Kathryn MacNAMARA of Dundas and Isabelle LEDROIT of Montreal.
First place in the men's and women's marathon came with a cheque for $15,000.
