Lanni Marchant of London, Ont., and Geoff Martinson of Vancouver, B.C., have been selected for the 2016 NACAC Road Race Cup taking place in San Juan, Puerto Rico February 28, 2016 at the World’s Best 10k, an IAAF Gold Label event.

 

Marchant, of the London Western Track and Field Club, had the top Canadian 10km time in 2015 of 31:49 achieved at the Canadian 10km Championships in Ottawa, Ont., on May 23. One-week later she also won the Canadian Half Marathon Championships in Calgary with an impressive altitude time of 1:12:17. Her third national road title in 2015 came at the Canadian Marathon Championships in Toronto on October 18 in a time of 2:28:09, the second fastest Canadian time ever. Marchant owns the Canadian women’s marathon record of 2:28:00. Marchant trains in Tennessee, Kenya and Ontario under her long-time coach Dave Mills.

 

Martinson, of the Prairie Inn Harriers Racing Club, was selected by virtue of his time of 29:32, ranked third in Canada in 2015, achieved en route to winning the Eastside 10k in Vancouver on September 19. Geoff also set a 5km road personal best and 2015 Canadian leading time of 13:56 in San Jose, California at the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot on November 26.
