Sunday, September 27 2015 - Canadians Impress at World Mountain Running Championships

The Canadian women cracked the top 10 of the team event with three top 50 results and two men dipped into the top 50 at this year�s World Mountain Running Championships in Betws-y-Coed, Wales. In total, Canada sent 14 athletes, which is the largest team to attend a World Championships for more than ten years.

First up were the Junior Men, swiss replica watches where Canada fielded a full team, all of whom were making their first appearance at the World Champs. Jared Welsh lead the way with a 50th place finish, and was shortly followed by Austin Sutherland, Hunter Sones, and Quetin Milner, running in at 57th, 60th, and 62nd, respectively. This team will only improve in years to come, as three out of the four athletes will still be juniors next year.

In the women�s race, Marianne Hogan and national team veteran Sarah Bergeron-Larouche ran close together all the way to the line, finishing only one second apart in 33rd and 34th place. Jessica Kaiser followed shortly after in 45th and Adele Blaise-Sohnius rounded out the team in 52nd place. The tight finish allowed the team to secure 10th place by a single point! This is the first time Canada has placed in the top 10 in the women�s team event since the World Mountain Running Trophy in Girdwood, Alaska in 2003.
