We are thrilled to announce our guest speaker at the pre-race dinner for the 2016 Harvest Half (or Quarter) Marathon. From the Kenyan Kids Foundation Canada:
“We are excited to announce that Lanni Marchant, the female Canadian record holder for the marathon, will be the guest speaker at our Harvest Half pre-race pasta dinner in St. Jacobs on Friday September 23rd.
“Lanni has just returned from Rio where she completed a history making Olympic double – competing in the women’s marathon just 46 hours after finishing the 10,000 m track event. Lanni is a frequent visitor to Kenya where she visits and trains with KKFC co-founders Wesley and Tarah Korir.”
This is an awesome opportunity for local runners. Tickets are limited; don’t miss out!
