More than 5,000 runners raise more than $625,000 and counting for 39 local 
MONTREAL, April 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Strong performances on a beautiful sunny day 
marked the 2013 Banque Scotia 21k de Montréal et 5k today and Athletics 
Canada National Half-Marathon Championships. A record 5,200 runners took to 
the scenic streets of Parc Jean-Drapeau today, raising more than $625,000 for 
39 local charities. 
Canadian Olympian and defending champion Eric Gillis from Guelph, ON cruised 
to a comfortable win and took the Athletics Canada National Half-Marathon 
Championships title with an impressive victory in 1:05:57. He broke away from 
Toronto's Rejean Chiasson at 3km and never looked back. Chiasson took second 
place with a finish time of 1:08:04. 
Krista Duchene from Brantford, ON had an even more impressive solo performance 
and took the female title at 1:12:28, just 19 seconds shy of the national 
record. She was trailed by Dayna Pidhoresky from Tecumseh, ON, who had a 
strong performance at 1:16:39 as she returned from injury. Lisa Avery was a 
surprise bronze medalist at 1:17:08. 
"Today's race was not only an inspiring one for the athletes and supporters, 
but also for Montreal's community," said Francois Lecot, Race Director, Banque 
Scotia 21k de Montréal et 5k. " Runners and spectators alike came together 
today both through the sport of running and for raising funds for causes in 
the community." 
The Scotiabank Charity Challenge raised more than $625,000 as of press time. 
This remarkable achievement exceeds last year's total of $565,000. 
"The 2013 Banque Scotia 21k de Montréal et 5k was a huge success and we want 
to thank runners and supporters who should be extremely proud of their 
achievements today," said Carole Chapdelaine, Scotiabank Senior 
Vice-President, Quebec and Eastern Ontario Region. "Today's race demonstrated
