TORONTO, April 16, 2014 /CNW/ - The Team Canada Boston Marathon Brunch is pleased to announce 2013 marathon record holder Lanni Marchant will be dining with her fellow Canucks' to provide last-minute training advice, photos and autographs for all attendees. Ms. Marchant broke the 28 year old women's marathon record last fall at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, catapulting her quickly among the all-time great endurance athletes in Canadian Sports history.
"I am really excited to not only run Boston for the first time - I also want to meet the hard working runners from across Canada who have trained through the worst winter possible.", says Marchant.
Lanni is entered to run Boston for the first time. Having recently broken the Canadian Half Marathon record in her pre-race training, she has the potential to be a top ten finisher at Boston.

Canadians from coast to coast choose from three seatings, including an all-you-can-eat buffet, prizes and entertainment for runners and their entourage.
