Kauai Marathon Champion Tyler McCandless Three-peats, Crushes Course Record Colorado Runners Take Home Top Spots in 5th Annual Kauai Marathon
September 1, 2013
The 5th Annual Kauai Marathon and Half Marathon featured over 1,700 participants and over 170 youth runners in their inaugural Keiki Race. The Aloha State was well represented with 911 local registrants of whom 615 were from Kauai. Runners from 41 States and 13 countries enjoyed the magic of the Garden of Isle.
The performance of the day went to Tyler McCandless, 26, Boulder CO, winning the Full Marathon with a course record time of 2:21:09 and smashing the Grand Hyatt $15,000 Speed Challenge. McCandless, sponsored by Newton Running, shared the excitement of his third victory. “After giving presentations over the last two weeks to Kauai’s elementary school kids on setting goals, working hard, and the joy of achieving your goals, nothing felt better than crossing the finish line under my targeted time. The aloha spirit of the race spectators, volunteers, staff, and competitors was outstanding as always. Winning for the third consecutive year is a very special moment in time for me and I could not be happier to share the experience with the friendly folks on Kauai.”
Tim Aukshunas, 28 of Seattle, WA powered home for second place finishing in 2:36:00 and 2010 Kauai Marathon Champion Michael Wardian, 37 of Arlington, VA finished third with a time of 2:37:58.
The State of Colorado took both of the top spots in the Full Marathon as Nicole Chyr, 35 of Denver, CO won convincingly in 3:00:33. Brooke Sugahara, 38 of Kapaa, Kauai was second in the marathon at 3:24:43 and also the top local Kauai finisher. The 2010 Kauai Marathon Champion, Becky Lynn Lassley, 35 rounded out the top three in 3:27:46.No Comments | Trackback
