Athletics: Gillis Dominates 89th Annual Boxing Day 10 Miler

It appears all systems are a go for Speed River's Eric Gillis for his highly anticipated marathon debut next month in Houston. In his final tune up race, Gillis dominated the field at the 89th Annual Boxing Day 10 Miler in Hamilton, Ontario. Gillis took off from the gun and built a 13 second lead at half way; over the hilly second half of the race he extended his lead to the ultimate winning margin of one minute and 47 seconds over Ethiopian Lemma Debelu. Gillis' time of 50 minutes and 10 seconds was the fastest time at the race in the last ten years. Gillis will next be in action at the Chevron Houston Marathon January 17th.
