Notes: Cassidy won his one and only London Marathon title to date in 2010 on his debut in the race. His other major marathon win came in Boston in 2012, when he set the fastest wheelchair marathon time ever (1:18:25). The time is not a record as the Boston course is ineligible. He represented Canada at the 2008, 2012 and 2016 Paralympics. The eldest of 10 siblings, Cassidy was diagnosed with cancer of the spine and abdomen weeks after he was born, and given a low chance of survival. He is a professional graphic designer and illustrator.
