Dylan Wykes and Lanni Marchant win in Vancouver

Dylan Wykes wins Vancouver Half

VANCOUVER, BC (06/22/2014) – Canada’s top marathoners, Dylan Wykes, from Vancouver, and Lanni Marchant took top honours by winning the men’s and women’s races with times of 1:03:51 and 1:13:41 respectively.

Over 6,400 runners took to the scenic course in Stanley Park for the 16th Scotiabank Vancouver Half- Marathon & 5K, raising $830,000 and counting for 78 local charities through the Scotiabank Charity Challenge.

This was Dylan’s best effort since coming back from an injury in 2012.  Lanni Marchant posted a great result in advance of her goal to win the Commonwealth Games next month in Glasgow, Scotland.  Dylan was able to beat 4-time champion Kip Kangogo from Lethbridge, who posted a time of 1:05:14.  Kate Bazely from Corner Brook was second for the women.

“Today was an incredible day for the Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5k, with Dylan Wykes and Lanni Marchant once again showing they are top of their field, posting fantastic times, “ said Clifton Cunningham, Race Director, Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5K. “Our event continues to grow bigger and better each year. I want to thank all of our runners, volunteers and the community for embracing the race and making it such a success.”

Honourary Chair of the Scotiabank Charity Challenge Kirk McLean was on site to congratulate participants in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge, who raised more than $830,000 for 78 charities as of press time. Scotiabank will award $5,000 each to the charity with the most runners, the charity with the highest amount of dollars raised per runner and to the charity with the highest overall amount fundraised.

“Congratulations to all the runners, walkers, and supporters on an unforgettable race day. We want to particularly thank everyone who took part in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge for making their run even more meaningful by giving back to such important causes,” said Winnie Leong, Scotiabank Senior Vice President of the BC and Yukon Region. “You raised an incredible amount that is going straight to the charities who work so tirelessly to make our communities even better places to live.”
