MANCHESTER, Conn. — A Canadian Olympian that had plans to run the Manchester Road Race this Thanksgiving has withdrawn.
Gabriela DeBues-Stafford withdrew from the Manchester Road Race due to an injury sustained while training, according to race officials.
DeBues-Stafford holds two Canadian national records. During the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, she placed fifth in the 1500-meter run.
"[Gabriela] had hoped to make her road racing debut at the MRR," Manchester Road Race officials said Friday.
The 86th Annual Manchester Road Race is one of the nation's oldest and largest turkey day runs and will kick off at 10 a.m. on Nov. 24. It will begin on Main Street in front of St. James Chuch.
